My focus for today's portion of the blog hop will be on the word "Rest". My natural state is one of creative chaos. My mind seems to overflow with all that I need to do, want to do, and dream of doing. Ideas run amok in the best possible way, and my challenge lies not in generating new ideas but in focusing on those that are most important to me.
As a result, Rest can be an elusive concept. My parents tell me that the same was true when I was a toddler. I'd go and go and go, resisting sleep for all that I was worth. Then, when I'd passed my capacity for exhaustion, I'd fall asleep wherever I was.
When I travel with friends and family, I'm still especially prone to doing the same. I can't bear the thought of missing a minute of my time with the ones I love, so I'll struggle to stay awake just to be in their presence. Theresa, my oldest friend and Official Den Mother for our ReMe Ocracoke in May, has witnessed me opening my eyes from a dead sleep to cohesively participate in their conversations without missing a beat. Perhaps this is one of my superpowers?!?!
At home I'm experimenting with a variety of techniques in hopes of establishing a regular pattern of consistent nighttime Rest. Morning exercise, limiting afternoon caffeine, an early bedtime, and even chamomile tea all play a part in this, and I'm still trying to find the combination that works best for me.
