    The problem with all such figures is that they cause all sorts of stress because people cant stick to them. We know if we're getting the right amount of sleep and telling us we're not doesn't help.

    That sounds about right Hugh and it is unlikely that sedation and sleep have anything in common apart from the not being awake bit. This is what happens when the turnip tops are in charge!

    Yes, I agree stressed and failure ridden and knowing it is "our fault" because we just have to do that one simple thing!

    Strangely, all the things they tell you to do to get to sleep are the things that stop me. Complete darkness and silence stop me dripping off and it’s not that I’m afraid of the dark.

    Funny Mamie, I feel the same about the blue screen thing. Everyone says to not be reading on your phone / tablet before going to sleep but I find it relaxes me to read (and all my books are digital) before I go to sleep and I can easily fall asleep with the tablet in my hands.
    Trust the process, the results will come

    How the Chili Pad Took My Sleep To the Next Level

    cheapest double to the UK is $882 or 710.02 plus import duty probably another 20% so a lot of money for a mattress topper even though it is water cooled/heated.
    I wonder how long it would be before it sprung a leak?
    Wow!! I have just read that article about the chilipad. I never knew such a thing existed. Thank you Ted for the link.
