There are certain times in the day when you need an energy boost. You tend to learn that about your body. You know that in the morning you need caffeine. I know that I can’t have coffee after noon. There are certain times for certain things. We learn to time box certain parts of our lives. I know that I try to have a daily bath at either 6pm or midnight. It’s how my body is wired.
Then there is the “witching hour” where one may let the brain go crazy with wild thoughts. Then those wild thoughts need to be adressed in some way. Or so your body pushes you to do so. That’s the witching hour. Some tackle that hour by reaching out to friends. Sometimes to strangers. Some binge watch a series. Some go get a cocktail or two.
These days, there may be one or more witching hours. And constant, diverse coping strategies are needed. And being open about that hour with yourself. What does it all mean?
