Pulling the Covers Up Over Your Head

I am sure that many of you have had this feeling a time or two. With working and busy schedules, you just want to get in bed and forget the world.

Too much stress in our lives can make us feel that way. Everything seems to be spinning out of control. It is happening way too fast where you feel like you are losing your mind. It is scary and puts us in a state of panic. You may feel the tears welling up inside of you or snap at someone for no apparent reason. You may feel “on edge” and just want to be alone. This stress will eventually become too much if you let it and lead to depression. You may even get in bed and pull the covers up over your head. This is your escape.

Sleep is good for blocking everything out, isn’t it? When you wake up, however, the problem is still there. Rest and give in, but not for too long. When you get up, start working on your problem and fight back. Do not let yourself give in to this for more than a day or two, as it is habit forming. Once you get into this pattern, it is difficult to get out.

Avoid taking on too much. Decrease and simplify your life so this does not happen. If things get out of your grasp and you experience this, put on the brakes and back up. You need to take control of the situation because pulling the covers up over your head is not an option.
