What’s your go-to snack when you’re exhausted?

Managing your health – and everything else – can be so draining. When you’re exhausted, what’s your go-to snack to help nourish and replenish your body (or soul)?

Mighty staffer @sav_bach says she learned a long time ago she needs something salty AND sweet, so her go-to snack is trail mix (... or sometimes popcorn and dark chocolate chips). If you’re feeling up to it, share your own go-to snack in the comments below, or find a little snack inspiration from fellow Mighties!

Sitting upright is most comfortable
I like sleeping on my side
On my belly all the way
I prefer to lie on my back
Did someone say fetal position?

Waking up during the night, advice please #Insomnia #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #MajorDepressiveDisorder #PTSD

Alright so for the longest time I was having night sweats which would wake me up in the night. Now that the weather is getting nicer temperature wise I am still waking up but not because I am sweating I’m just wide awake. A few years back I was on trazadone because I couldn’t get to sleep now my body is refusing to sleep all night long. It’s really messing with my ability to function and I know how important sleep is for my mental health and mood because my depression is worse when I’m dealing with really bad sleep. I’m not sure how to fix my sleep situation because I changed my diet earlier this year and it initially stopped the night sweats so I was sleeping better. I feel like I’m back to square one. I don’t know whether to pursue a sleep study or what but I’m very tired of not sleeping. Any tips or ideas guys?
