This is Charles Dickens. His cure for his insomnia was to make sure his bed was pointed North.
Benjamin Franklin found that it helped him sleep if he alternated beds. He had two beds and would move from one to the other if he couldn’t sleep.
Abraham Lincoln refused to give into insomnia. He’d just get up and go for a walk no matter how late – or early -it was.
Can you relate?
My Mum believed that the head of the bed should point North if at all possible.
I’ve moved into our spare bedroom when I can’t sleep and then I sleep. Why does that work?
What are your unusual methods for getting to sleep when sleep is being coy and resistant?
