Here’s a nice article in the Guardian by Emma Brockes about what to do while waiting for sleep. When my book, In Pursuit of Sleep, comes out (early August?), you’ll learn how to go get sleep instead of waiting, but for now this sounds like a good idea. At least it’s a good read.
Have difficulty sleeping? You have come to the right place. If you are looking for professional help, you should search elsewhere on the Internet. I am simply an individual who had considerable difficulty sleeping and finally solved the problem. I have an MS from Stanford University and have been researching the sleep problem for decades. Perhaps the solution I found for myself will be of benefit to you. What I am offering as a solution to insomnia based on what scientists, writers, psychologists, and all sorts of creative people have learned about sleep onset, also known as hypnagogia, over the last couple hundred years. I offer no medication, supplements, or getting-to-sleep tricks. It is a tried-and-true procedure based on what happens inside the mind when it goes to sleep.
Will my method of getting to sleep help you? Perhaps. Perhaps not. But it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to find out.
So where can I get my hands on this procedure? you ask.
Sorry, but it’s not available yet. I’m hoping to publish it sometime in early October. Return here from time to time for schedule updates.
