Wink Sleep

One thing I have noticed with some friends, they complain of not being able to sleep, yet all their bedrooms have televisions...silly...do NOT have a television in your bedroom...you cannot switch your brain off as easily as the television set.

Another technique I have tried, is to count backwards from 10 down to zero and then from 7 down to zero and imagine you are in a place you would like to be, on holiday, resting, whatever, it does work after some practise..

Hope this helps..

I usually like quiet and dark for sleep. However, in our room, my wife likes TV on and lights on (though we've reached a compromise on the light/dark scenario - now semi-dark).

I've found in the last while that, if my wife is round at her Filipina pals' playing cards or mah jongg, I fall asleep no problem in front of the telly in our living room of an evening. A strange thing is I can fall asleep no matter what's on. I've been sound asleep through loud war film DVD's, such as the deafening cannonade scene preceding Pickett's Charge during the film Gettysburg and the cannonades during the film Waterloo. When I do wake up, as a film re-runs for the n'th time, I go upstairs to complete my sleep.

However, when my wife's at home and we sleep in our room, she puts on Philippine satellite TV with the volume reasonably low. Can I sleep ? Can I heck as like !!! There's something about Filipino TV which is really annoying !! Everyone seems to shout, entertainment hosts, guests, competitors, newsreaders, drama sitcom actors, comedy sitcom actors.

I can sleep though Gettysburg but not through a Filipino TV prog ! Why is that ?

There is an herb called "valerian" (which is some kind of valium precursor) that helps me get to sleep.
