My body begs for sleep.
My mind races.
Why is it so difficult to calm our minds when we know that sleep will refresh and restore us.
At different times in our lives, we may find ourselves unable to fall asleep, waking in the middle of the night, or waking too early.
If you research insomnia, you will find that more women than men suffer with this problem.
Is it because women tend to be the worriers, the caregivers? Do we internalize our problems more, so that in the night they come out to haunt us?
Whatever the reasons, I know that as I lie here in the still of the night, with my worries and concerns running through my head, tomorrow will dawn and sleep will try to catch me during the day.
Do you suffer with insomnia? If so what do you do to combat it?
I know that I will get out of bed at my normal time, meditate, take my morning walk, and hope that this bout with insomnia will pass quickly.
