I have always had a hard time falling asleep. I don't know what it is about laying in bed that makes me think so much. Maybe it is what lies in the darkness behind the shadows causing my mind to wander, trying to fill in the gaps. The not too faint chirping of crickets outside my window isn't of any help either. I am tired, but I can't make my mind stop. Nothing of importance is even playing out in my thoughts, so what is the point of all this? Certainly being a zombie all day from lack of sleep is not it, so I step towards the door of reason as to why I think so much when there is nothing to be thought about. I stumble upon a thought; I am almost certain of the reason- lack of yoga and meditation. I have always been high strung, even as a little girl, so it doesn't surprise me that I am still that way as of today, especially when trying to sleep. Yoga and meditation help me sort my thoughts out while also helping me practice the art of not thinking at all. Having a clear mind is such as good feeling that I am almost mad at myself for not taking more advantage of such an amazing thing sooner and more frequently. I am bad at schedules and tend to stray from my own path, but yoga and meditation are something that I need in my life to be more balanced.
Does your wandering mind ever keep you up all night?
