I’m lying in bed tossing and turning trying to get comfortable and get some much needed sleep. As usual my mind was working overtime and I couldn’t fall asleep quickly.
I started to do my deep yoga breathing and other relaxation exercises I’ve learned over the years. I tried to clear my head and think of nothing which inevitably makes me start thinking of everything! I finally gave in and took an ambien and fell asleep within a few minutes.
The next morning I felt as if I had the best sleep of my life (or at least the last few years). My mind was clear and I felt focused without even having my morning coffee. Just as I was about to start my daily routine of slowly getting up and stretching, I had a strange but somewhat familiar feeling, I didn’t have any aches or pains. No negative thoughts, no anxiety... I felt "fit as a fiddle and ready for love". My mind was totally alert and my energy was pushing me out of bed. I couldn’t wait to start the day. Wow, this is great... anything is possible on this new day.
Then I heard a really loud annoying noise and didn't recognize it right away - it was the alarm clock! The euphoria was all just a dream as reality set in along with the aches, pains and groggy feeling of my morning. Damn that alarm clock... "and that's nyc2vin".
