However it can be a good choice if you are not sleeping in my experience.
Some times my mind is racing and I can’t get it to settle down. A conversation I want to have desperately, a conversation I had that went sideways and it’s bothering me like crazy..Etc.
Also I find it hard in the moment to decide; is my sleeplessness a big problem right now that requires something to totally divert my thinking or a small problem that requires me to remain calm and wait it out e.g. 10-15min and I’m sleeping happily. For me that’s the hardest part, because if I ran every time then I’d be losing sleep by the bundle and I’d be screwed.
Ps. When I run, I don’t run hard as I’m also keenly aware that getting my heart pumping will be counter productive too. Such a balance!! Arghh
