We just finished reading a press release that serves up some interesting insomnia advice. In amongst all the stuff we hear a hundred times every day was something that caught our attention:
When it gets near your chosen bedtime consider playing a board game ... gentle games such as Scrabble are far less stimulating than watching TV and will help you to engage positively with your family or housemates.
So there you have it - if you're really at a loss as to how to get over your insomnia, get out the Scrabble. Of course, you'll need at least one obliging partner in order to play.
We recommend selling the game to them using words other than 'gentle' and 'unstimulating', though.
