It’s not so much a panic, but more a huge imagining of potential future outcomes for projects that live in my head.
Once I am awake (usually kids crying) my brain throws a thought at me, I think of some way to change the outcome and then the snowball effect means I don’t sleep for hours.
I can feel it when the Adrenaline hits the body and at that point i might as well get up and have a coffee. I ain’t sleeping anymore.
Last night was bad but gave me a few ideas to work on.
Hoping for sleep tonight though.
Happy Saturday chimps.
About a year ago I tried to meditate using the headspace app for a while…it didn’t really stick. I struggled to find the right time of day to use it, even though when I did manage to do it, I really liked it.
Last night I was struggling to fall asleep. My brain was over drive so I downloaded the Headspace app again and logged in to try one of their sleep meditations.
The soft voice of the narrator guided me down a river with trees on the banks and fish in the water. Within minutes I drifted off.
It seemed to make me focus on just one thing (the fish story) and that was enough to send me to sleep with headphones on my ears.
it made me want to keep my subscription and try the meditation stuff again.
