I've always enjoyed being alone with my thoughts and projects. What has been difficult for me is letting my projects and thoughts go when I meditate...hahaha

Waking up and watching my thoughts go around in cicles has been my main practice for years. It is hard for me to stay in bed because I want to get up and go to work. I wake up around 4:30am no matter what and I stay in bed for at least an hour and try and just be still even if I am at retreat...even when I am alone I am not alone...hahahaha

It takes about five minutes for me to go to sleep...I never remember dreaming.
