Feel bad at night

Your Question

Why do I feel bad at night but not during the day


Hey there, thanks for getting in touch!
It sounds like you’re going through a tough time, and it’s completely normal to feel that way. Night-time can often amplify our emotions because it’s quieter and we’re left alone with our thoughts. During the day, distractions like school, friends, and activities can help keep our minds occupied.
Sometimes, when everything is quiet, our worries and anxieties can feel overwhelming, and it might seem like they’re more intense at night. It’s ok to feel this way, and you’re not alone.
One thing you could try is creating a bedtime routine that helps you relax and unwind before sleep. This could include things like reading a book, listening to calming music, or practicing deep breathing exercises. Finding healthy ways to cope with your emotions can make a big difference.
