Losing sleep due to exhaustion?
There are certain things that are outside of your control and there’s no way to guarantee a win. So all anyone can do is their best and then to relax. For example if we want an interview to go well, aside from making proper preparations, it is important to learn to relax and get a good night’s rest before the interview in order to perform well. Chinese medicine believes exhaustion hurts the heart. Absent-mindedness can lead to insomnia too. They also manifest into difficulty falling asleep, lots of dreams, forgetfulness, fatigue, shapeless stool, and pale complexion. This is would be an important time to replenish the eart, nourish blood and calm the mind.
