Typically, I’m a morning person. My energy is higher in the morning than in the evening. I enjoy the sunrise and watching the squirrels and birds carrying out their morning chores.

Recently, I’ve become a night person – bedtime is well after midnight. I discussed this phenomenon with S. She suggested that I not analyze it and consider the change temporary. Rather, follow her mother’s advice that these hours are “the uninterrupted quiet of the night, when you can put your worry to work!”

I liked that advice. I’ve put my worry to work by writing, reading relaxing material, or listening to gentle music.

The uninterrupted quiet of the night is soothing.
