I woke up in the middle of the night the other night and couldn't get back to sleep. I always get really desperate and try really weird things to get back to sleep, including imagining that everything is bigger than it actually is - which was advice given to me by a dear friend of mine at 6am when I was trying to sleep on a moldy couch next to an estonian backpacker I didn't want anything to do with. It worked.
Anyway the other night it didn't work so I put on Charlie and the Chocolate factory really loudly and closed my eyes and tried to imagine the whole movie in my head. It worked. I suppose the success of these haphazard remedies depends largely on the circumstances of why it is that I can't sleep.
