There's a breathing exercise that can help you slow down your heart rate and put you to sleep. Google it. Should be useful

If you're having problems falling asleep, Google sleep hygiene and build a routine that helps transition you. If you're having problems staying asleep (ie waking up every couple hours), look to stress and anxiety fixes.

Yoga. You need to silence the mind so you can sleep. And also do something other than looking at your PC for last 40 mins before sleeping. Light from your laptop kids your brain to thinking its daytime.

Yeah if I had to guess, it has to do with anxiety. Thanks all for the tips!

Sold a staff aug. project where I'm the lead. Client didn't want to pay for analysis with the proper skillset we suggested, and now I'm swamped in work they can't do. Trying to imagine Sisyphus happy!

Drowning in student debt, drowning in the wrong opportunities, I make a six figure salary working pharma but I’m in a deep depression. I can’t get out of pharma without taking a significant pay cut.
