Today's tip was about meditation and imagine my delight when I read this because guess who has just signed up for a beginners meditation course? Why me of course. I'm enrolling because I'm a bit of an insomniac. Haven't slept in 10 years (well not properly anyway) and tried all the remedies apart from prescribed drugs. No thanks.
This is my tip for today and looks like meditation might not only resolve the sleep issue but help the writing process too. Read on.

Meditation: A great way to boost your supply of ideas and writing
Meditation has many benefits that are particularly relevant to writers. I practice Transcendental Meditation and often have ideas for books or chapters during or shortly after meditation. Problems I'm wrestling with are often solved. When I meditate, the ego drops away and ideas come if the time is right, so there's no 'writer's block'.
If I'm too tired to write, I meditate for 20-30 minutes, which gives me the energy I need to keep going. Try it yourself?
