When I Can't Sleep

Last Update: March 19, 2015

The other day I was thinking about how most of my best ideas come when I'm falling asleep, and while I do love my sleep, I have to say that it is really nice to be able to jump on my site and write a post when the idea hits instead of having to wait until I'm back at the office or something like that as I have in the past. It also helps in the "idea loss prevention" sector...you know all of those great thoughts you have as you are falling asleep and can never remember in the morning? Anyway, just a little thought when I'm awake while I should be sleeping. :)

Well that is certainly a way to make the time productive. Knowing that it can take the mind up to two hours to calm down generally from being stimulated by the lights of the computer I tend to write on paper once I shut the computer down!

I used to have a note pad by the bed. When I had a solution to a problem I was working on I would jot it down. Generally I found that when writing in my almost sleep stage the writing was usually illegible!

My ideas enter my head also when I lie in bed for a while.It must be one of those things because I have heard others say the same.

Keep pen and paper handy near you when going to bed and as soon as that idea comes in jot it down. Or failing that if you phone is near by note is down or recording your thought on the phone for later use.
Take care

Oh, for sure! I definitely do! My phone is full of lists...as are random scraps of paper on my desk! :) Thanks for the reminder, though...it can be easy to forget to do it sometimes!

I know this feeling all to well, I wish I can come up with a notepad while I'm sleeping just to jot a few ideas down. Your best thoughts come when you are at ease or approaching sleep for that matter.

I always keep the memo app on my phone close by, where I have lists and lists of ideas. :) It's true, though...it's the time of day when everything is finally quiet, and then your mind can run wild! :)
