I have come to the conclusion that one of the things that separates the grown-ups from the kids is that grown-ups can realize, "Hey, I'm overreacting to this, I need to step away and calm down."

A variation of this is being able to step away from the lurking anxieties that are so good at fueling insomnia. Whether it's distracting yourself with solitaire, or training your mind to focus on something else, or talking it over with a friend or partner, relaxing the body with stretching, or a sleeping pill, or a warm bath and a good book.... how you move on from the anxiety depends on the individual. The key thing is to realize "Hm, worrying about this isn't getting me anywhere," and move on.

And I am heading off to bed, m'self.
