You lie in bed at night and try to fall asleep.
You can't and think about what could be the reason. You think of your To Dos:
"Have I thought of everything?"
"Didn't I forget something else?"
"Could I perhaps now find the solution to my biggest problem, which has been bothering me all day?"
There you go...
The stress that slowly builds up due to everyday pressure has finally reached you and won't let you go.
