    I seldom sleep as late as 5.00 am. It does get on my nerves. Today I thought I would turn on Radio 4 and have a little snooze but they played Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythologies that went on and on which meant that I got only a 15 minute snooze.

    My partner gets up around 5 or 6 am. I rarely get up before 11 or 12 am and often go to bed at 4 am. We live in different time zones! I've tried to get to bed earlier but it just doesn't work for me. Radio 4 Extra is a good for sending me to sleep.

    I have been introduced to the raisin meditation, very interesting and worth doing.

    Having googled it, I think I might get bored after the third or fourth raisin...

    I only did it with 1 raisin, I understand the idea so may try it again.

    Haha, 35 seconds in to the audio on Google and I got distracted - if I had just landed from space I would not put a raisin in my mouth - what are they thinking of?

    It is a metaphor, not about putting a raisin in your mouth if is about focusing your mind on 1 thing and stopping it from wandering off.

    We did another meditation last night, full body scan, I struggled with focusing on what we were supposed to be doing and found my mind wandering but I found it easy to reign it back in again and calm it down which is useful because I do struggle with a busy brain.

    I am out of raisins at the moment. Would it work with a sultana?
