Some of you may be all tucked in ready for a nights sleep, some may be getting prepared for the long night ahead. 

But most importantly whoever may be reading this right now sleepless elite or sleepy elite, I hope you're doing okay and your day has been well.
If it hasn't fear not there's always tomorrow which can bring brighter days 💕

If you feel like rambling go ahead!  I'm up tonight and ready to listen :)

Here's some tips if you need help getting to sleep. 

Here's some tips if you need help getting to sleep
- Get yourself a nice cuppa, if tea isn't your fix then some lovely warm milk(i like mine with cinnamon)

- listen to something relaxing,  experiment with whatever works for you, 
Soothing music,  try ASMR,  soothing videos like running water ect. 

- meditate

- write down your worries or thoughts so they're ready for tomorrow, no need to think about this now 💕

-turn off all technology take a break from your phone and take time to unwind(however do note I do not recommend this if you are having anxious or intrusive thoughts, or physical symptoms of anxiety distraction and meditation is best)


Here's a quote of the night to take in 



Sweet dreams and I'm here if you need someone to talk to 💕


(on a side note I really want to make a thread similar every night where I offer a good after chat ramble (most importantly on the weekends with no chat)  and give sleeping tips quotes and a chance to talk about our morning plans and get the off our chest.)

I would love to make a thread every night to try and support people it will definitely be earlier than this I just got real busy bad night haha however I will ask Mike and Aifes insight firsthand because I really don't want to spam this forum section every night 😂

    Hey Shaunie group therapy is one of those things that can significantly help but may be hard to adjust to. 

    This article may help: https://caps.unc.edu/services/group-therapy/tips-getting-most-out-group-therapy

    I found group difficult for I loved listening to others and trying to help and buildup on it but I didn't like sharing,  I've never been good at it really, I found it started to be really helpful after a few sessions so definitely give it 1 -3 to get a feel for it and remember any difficulties or problems you may have you can discuss with one of the staff. 

    You're in my thoughts :)

    @The Mix

    Is it okay if I make a similar thread every night? I don't want to spam the anything goes as I know other forums i've used has had a rule limit so thought it was best to check and get a heads up

    Much love! 🌠

     I'd second others and say this is a lovely thread idea, @Laine. Always nice to get some positivity and words of encouragement before going to sleep.
    Daily posts can be a bit much for some communities, so it's good of you to check. Looking at Anything Goes, a few threads are either created or responded to every day, which should balance out a daily thread enough for it not to become 'spammy'. Feel free to go ahead.
    Mike :)

    @Laine such a lovely post idea, i wish I had come across this earlier as last night was tough. You really are such a lovely caring person Laine and it’s great having you here. I really like the fact we are going to get this every night, I think it will benefit so many including me x

    I hope your okay  <3

    Thanks Mike! 
    I just wanted to check in, I'll give the threads a try and monitor how it goes,  if it's overwhelming then it can take a break or just be on the weekends 😂

    I'm doing okay thanks things at home have much improved since I put my foot down and got things sorted x

    Tonight's thread won't be so much a "goodnight" thread as I aim to post it around 20:00 when chat would normally start and later down the line as a post I will add a good night at about 22:00 for those going to bed and filled with positivity for those who aren't.

    I'm gonna give it a try and see how it goes and don't how it's received obviously I may have to stop if disputes break out but we will see <3
