Meditate and introspect. Nothing can be more powerful to know yourself and to break the mental boundaries.
If you meditate regularly, you will know what I am saying. It will calm you down, but not your dreams. It will give you peace but will still keep the fire in you going on. It will make you know yourself, without the need to unknow others.
Though, the best time, it says, is early mornings. And though I have experienced the magic of the early morning meditation, you can pursue it any time of the day, depending on the schedule.
Do give time to introspect too during meditation or separately at any other time of the day.
Turn your thoughts about yourself and the world around. Meditate regularly.
