It’s Not for Lack of Desire

A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures.

–Irish saying

Oh, to sleep, perchance to dream, etc. etc. I am wide awake at 3 a.m., and this is not unusual. If one of the best cures for what ails is a long sleep, how does apply this to the insomniac? Or maybe I need to laugh myself into exhaustion…

    Ah, sleep. Not one of those areas where I have much talent or can offer much advice. When I can’t sleep, I get up. Sometimes I find I can then nod off in my favorite chair. Otherwise, I play with my pictures on the computer, or blog, or something.
    Glad you are linked on my blog, lost all my bookmarks when Firefox became corrupted. Wouldn’t want to lose you!

    Lately, I’ve been having a bit of insomnia myself. I haven’t any cure for it. I just try to wait it out.

    I am a “recovering” insomniac…my secret weapon against insomnia? Helga’s Sinus Pillow. It’s made of silk and filled with flax seed, lavendar and eucalyptus. When I put the sinus pillow over my eyes I find it so relaxing and lightly fragrant that it puts me right to sleep. Recommended it to a few other insomniacs who have had the same results. You can Google “Helga’s Sinus Pillow” to find several online retailers that sell them. Perhaps this might help you as well. Good luck!

    To return to sleep, I listen to the radio: as soon as I become interested in the chat, I relax and am asleep in no time! Before I had a radio I could program to switch off after 30 mins, I used to turn off my radio without realising I was doing it – presumably as I was drifting off. As the radio may disturb hub. earpiece a possible solution – not brilliant as could be uncomfortable. Lavender linen spray is also supposed to be a relaxant – I just love the smell. Sweet dreams.
