Random Images and a back door to Absurd Thoughts...
Never tried counting backward...will try it sometime...I do keep a small note pad and write randomly when I 'over-think'..
.C-CS, I've found counting backwards helps. When I find myself not counting but thinking again, I just start counting down again, from 100, or from around where I left off.If you get put under for surgery, they have you count backwards from 10. I don't think I ever got past 9 or 8.Some people say 'count sheep', they say this works because it takes one part of the brain to count and another part to visualize the sheep. I try that sometimes too, but it's hard for me to visualize flying or jumping sheep.Sometimes I get ideas and have to get up to write them down, or be worried about forgetting them.Sleep is cool.:).
I have a saying -and taught it to my son-"If it isn't written -it doesn't exist.."So - I carry something to write on -most of the time and keep one by my bed--because - I do forget-- --confession--sometimes I forget the pad and have to write on a napkin :-)Interestingly-the cadets at West Point must carry a small pad and pen or pencil at all times...C-CS
.That's cool. It's like what Ed Norton said to Ralph Kramden: When you get an idea, write it down! Write it down!I must get one of those little 'memo minder' things so I can just speak ideas into it quickly and then go back to sleep.:)
