The Nagging Thoughts That Keep You Up At Night,

Have you ever tried to fall asleep and just couldn't because you had waaay too many thoughts circling around in your head? Well, join the club because you are certainly not alone. 

It's almost as if you are tired but your brain just drank ten espressos and has more energy than a dog playing fetch. You know what I mean — the thoughts just begin to circle and before you know it the sun is coming up. 

Everyone has different things that keep them up at night. It could be the deadlines you have coming up or a fight you had with your friend. Whatever the issues are they lead to you thinking about everything bad you have ever done in your past. Like that time you got into a fender bender a year ago. Or when you had that awkward encounter with your ex while you looked a hot mess a couple weeks back. 

Not being able to sleep peacefully at night is the WORST. But thank god every night is not like that. Nothing a soothing cup of sleepy tea, comfy blankets, and maybe a good book to distract you won't cure. 

Here is what keeps you up at night based on your zodiac sign

Aries (March 21 to April 19): 

Probably food. You’re probably deciding whether or not you should be eating more food right now. You know you shouldn’t be eating food right now but that doesn’t matter at this point. All better judgment has fleeted in this point of pre-REM delirium.

All the money you shouldn’t have spent.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20): 

Good comebacks to arguments that never happened between people in your life that really aren’t that bad. As a matter of fact, you have no real enemies or anybody that you particularly hate.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22): 

How much you regret making plans with friends in the morning. You’re not meeting with them until 12 or so, but that’s still too early.

You’re debating whether or not the gym is actually worth it. What are the benefits that everyone constantly gloats about? You have yet to see these benefits. Sweating is no benefit.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): 

All the lies you let yourself believe throughout the day. Like when your mom told you that you’re beautiful. She’s your mom, of course she has to say that. Why can’t she ever be honest with you?
