    Some people are unhappy and stay awake worrying at night.

    I guess he has to be happy during the day because there’s no joy in his dreams.

    They say your mood affects you more when you’re asleep than when awake. They advise putting yourself in a tranquil state of mind before sleeping.

    Some people worry about weird things like German sausage – and can’t sleep because they fear the worst

    I guess I’m pretty fortunate- I learned at a rather early age how to distract myself from the worries of the day and get to sleep each night. At least, 95% of the time.

    Best suggestion I have is to re-focus, or distract yourself from the free-floating anxiety by thinking about a project you are working on, say a craft or renovation or a hobby, that you are trying to plan out. Works for me, anyway.

    Pigs can apparently sleep between 7 to 15 hours a day…I’d place our Pig closer to the 15-hour end of the spectrum. :D

    I do all my sleeping during the day when I should be worrying.

    Pig, you are my spirit animal. I find 2 am to be the sweet spot for dealing with existential issues.

    I find the following quote to be very true: " Blessed is the man who is too busy to worry during the daytime and too tired to lie awake at night".

    Why is Pig so worried? Is it because life is stressful?

    I fall asleep because my head is on a pillow, sometimes I only need to be flat on my back. I don’t know what my problem is.

    I always feel better when I’m sleeping. Great way to live my fantasy lives.

    At night I dump all my cares onto a To-Do list and the sense of preparation helps with sleep. Of course the list is ignored come morning but has served its purpose.

    Sometimes I think Pig is the best adjusted character in this strip. This isn’t one of them.
