Brain on Steroids

Is it just me or do you wake up in the middle of the night and have a brain storm? It's not that you remember why you woke up, just that you woke up. Then while laying there patiently waiting to go back to sleep your mind starts planning. At first it is nothing important, like, when will you go under that bed and bring out all those dust bunnies, maybe shave your legs and how many times you'll cut yourself. But the worst part for me is when I get inspired and there is no stopping my mind. What colors do I use, what kind of artwork will make it wonderful. Will someone smile or cry when receiving the card.

I did that when I worked as a graphic designer, I never designed at work, it was in the car or in bed. Then when I got to work I would produce my product. I still do that, the problem is that my office is in my home. I find myself trying to sneak out of the bedroom while slipping on my slippers and making my way to my drawing board. I usually make it too.

But what you don't know is that I have to get my beauty sleep. Yes beauty sleep, as you get older it's of major importance. I really want to know if you suffer from brain on steroids? Am I alone out here....and is there a cure. God Bless you all !

  1. Ha - for me, it's my brain doing double duty while I work the graveyard shift in a hospital lab! Whenever I have a few free minutes I start thinking about new projects and promotions... You're not alone.
