This is a great topic, especially after what I posted yesterday.
I can feel like I am really tired and go to bed. After settling in under the covers, all cozy and sleep I expect I will be asleep soon. BUT THEN…
A switch in my brain goes in overdrive as all kinds of thoughts, ideas, dreams begin running through those streets up there. I wonder where they were when I was feeling awake. Why do they pop in for a visit when I feel tired and want to go to sleep?
I toss and turn unable to settle. Then I realize that I am so busy trying to get to dreamland that the other thoughts are gone, but now I am too awake. The only thing to do is get up, make myself a cup of tea and curl up in my big chair wrapped in a warm blanket. An hour or so later I finally get tired again, head back to bed, and finally fall into sweet sleep.
So, what keeps you up at night? And what do you do about it?
