Winken Blinken and Nod

Insomnia hits me occasionally. Often, it is due to unresolved issues, running through my brain although the body is exhausted, preventing Sleep from taking over.

Tonight, there is no reason why I should not be fast asleep in bed right now. I can't think of anything that is bothering me, which may be keeping me up. My eyes are falling shut even as I type this. And yet, when my head touches the pillow, sleep eludes me. The harder I try, the further Mr Sandman seems to run from me...

Maybe I should try counting sheep...

nay counting sheeps don't work. Try reading. Either it'll bore you to noddy land or... time well spent. It happens to me too. AND for the same reasons too.

Try staying awake. Fool your body and mind into thinking you're trying to stay up. This method sometimes helps me to fall asleep.
