It seems I am developing a new habit. I wake in the middle of the night and my mind begins to work overtime. I am flooded with ideas. I know that all these brilliant ideas will disappear by morning. With the understand that my mind will not quite down, I decide to get out of bed and write down these ideas for topics for blog posts and articles.
I must clear my mind in order to fall asleep once again. The result is a nearly a page of topics and ideas. My mind now clear, I can return to bed and fall asleep. Two practical ideas: 1. If you have what might be good ideas in the middle of the night don’t try to remember in the morning (that never worked for me). Get out of bed and write them down. 2. If you have problems falling asleep or falling back to sleep, get out of bed for a while and then try again.
