"To sleep, perchance to dream- ay, there's the rub." Hamlet III i

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Hamlet may not have been able to catch a few zzzs but I may have discovered a cure for my insomnia. I have a rice bag. It's a simple quilted flannel bag filled with raw rice and some lavender. I place it in the microwave oven for a couple of minutes (just long enough to warm it up) and then lay it across my forehead and eyes. The rice bag shuts off all the ambient light in the bedroom, the lavender and the warmth lull me to sleep. I slept like a baby last night...a full 8 hours...and woke up fully refreshed. Maybe if Hamlet had used something like this, he could have lived to tell the tale.

  So glad that this post was about sleep, and not suicide. I was bothered for a minute.

Will definitely try this.

    Oh that sounds delightful. I like to sew: I think I might just try this out myself. Thanks for the idea.
