My head is noisy at the best of times. Work noise, life noise, worry noise, pointless noise.
If I’m lucky I can quiet it down for a bit. Distract it with music, TV, a book, even an interesting file at work.
If I’m not so lucky my brain starts swirling about from thought to thought. One thing will remind me of another and off it goes until I’ve forgotten what I was trying to determine in the first place.
That was the case today when I was supposed to be relaxing, as needles placed by the acupuncturist to “calm my mind” were not expecting my buzzing brain.
From reno projects, to work deadlines, to questions/worry about the state of the world, today brain was having none of the calm.
Now that it is time for bed I am hoping that it got most of its chaotic thoughts out, maybe then the needles placed to encourage better sleep will not have been a wasted effort.
Maybe I can go to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed (odd concept, rarely happens) because a refreshed brain is much better at handling a buzzing brain that is worrying about the state of…well, everything.
