Over the years, I have learned a few strategies that help with that a bit. I write down what I have to do for the day now and prioritize what has to be done first. It seems like it helps me get more organized and get more accomplished in a day. But it doesn't help slow my mind down one bit. Actually, it seems like it frees it up to run other races.
My usual morning goes something like this:
- push snooze 3-4 times when the alarm goes off at 5:30
- drag out of bed around 6
- put on coffee
- change and bolus Chris
- get coffee, Bible, notebooks and laptop and head for the recliner
- stare at wall sipping coffee while my mind goes through daily tasks at 100 mph
- open Bible......try to make sense of what God is trying to say......
