Particularly when I get this lullaby in my head on a loop ! (including visuals)

Despite awakening somewhat fractious I am always UP and alert!

There is just something about her mouth being so close to the microphone and the use of some very nimble fingers that has me 'tossing' and turning.

A lullaby ? Are you joking me!

Anyone see the TV prog re this very subject tonight? Very eye opening. Lack of sleep can lead to weight gain, type 2 diabetes, bad guts, glucose level spikes and all kinds of stuff.

Apparently good things to do before bedtime are:

Eat two Kiwi fruits.

Have a hot bath and then open your bedroom window and get cold before you go to bed.

Do some kind of "mindful thinking."

Take a pre (not pro) biotic fibre sachet on a drink before you go to be - this was shown to be the most effective.

Yes - it was a good programme. Some good tips like turning off tablet and phone screens an hour
before bedtime.

After a ****ing horrendous journey across the world, I'm now on my 37th hour awake, lying in a hotel bed knowing that I've got another 4 hour flight in about 6 hours.

Living the dream.
