Or do you just write down all of your thoughts? There are times when I cannot fall asleep because I have too many thoughts going through my head. I have even written some things in my sleep. Is this normal? How do you deal with this?
This might be an opportune time to look at my sleeping sleep binaural beat hub where you get a free download mp3 that will most definitely put you into a deep refreshing sleep.
I have a similar problem to yours and it worked for me, that's why I wrote a hub on it.
As I have a thought, I write it down.
Sometimes on paper but I have a Palm within reach (or in my pocket) most times.
That would be nice to know... Man I kept waking up last nighting thinking about the book series I'm reading. I'm exhausted.
Whenever I get pulled into thought like that, I try to remember to bring myself back to my own awareness. The more you practice this the better at it you will get and less often will you get sucked downstream in your own flowing flood of thought. The key is in the remembering! Good Luck, this really works and you will begin to sleep soo much better. This might sound crazy but at least it works for me!
it is very simple guys I have an easy method, I write a hub.....jimmy
Good one Mark LOL
I don't drink so I take deep breaths and listen to soothing calming music.
Other times, I allow myself to think and write what's on my head.
I mean if you're creating and you're energised by it then keep it going. But if it's rehashing same-old, same-old stuff that you're tired of hearing, isn't getting you anywhere and isn't resourceful to you then you're heaps better off shutting it off. Is it anything in particular?
For me its either stories or ideas. If they are stories or ideas I usually write them down. Sometimes I find if I get them out of my head and on to paper or even into my phone's note section my brain rests a bit. The thing that I am finding is that more ideas come to me while I am about to fall asleep or in the shower. I am thinking that its because I have 3 kids running around all the time and this is the time that I have alone with my thoughts or ideas.
Lucky you Triplet mom, sounds like it's good stuff. Yep, it seems like that's the time your ideas come out to you during this quiet period. If its not interfering with your sleep, or running up your water bill, keep a journal and pen handy and write them all down. If it is then you could schedule a time for yourself when the kids are napping, when you're in the toilet(!), get the kids babysat or get up a little earlier and have a lie-in to generate ideas and start getting used to using that time specifically to be productive and creative.
Good luck with it. :-)
ps often if you're not acting on them and engaged in the ideas then they'll keep coming to stir you into action, and really because you're wanting to do it. If you take one and work with it you'll find ideas springing off that one. Depends on what your preference is, and what you're wanting to produce.
Actually I lie in is a great idea I hadn't thought about doing something like that. Because sometimes these ideas do interfere with my sleep. I would try waking up early but I am not an early bird (do not function well in the morning) and my son is always awake extremely early. So maybe lying down and trying to relax for a bit might be a great idea. Thanks so much.
