It's Day 10 of the meditation challenge and I hope everyone's doing well! I was up very early this morning and when this happens I feel the illusion of efficiency and wonder how all the lazy people still sleeping ever get anything done. I consider it a very mild form of mania, exacerbated by caffeine consumption.
I had too much tea this morning, which made me wired and anxious, and then I inconveniently crashed back to earth around the time I was supposed to get to work ,so I needed another caffeine boost. I've never considered myself a caffeine addict so I've never thought about stopping taking caffeine altogether, but after today, I'm realizing it may be the time!
