Sleep ad­vice

Thank you to the many read­ers who con­tacted us fol­low­ing the let­ter from Mrs Rus­sell ask­ing for sleep tips... ■ Like Mrs Rus­sell, I am a very light sleeper and don’t sleep well, so I hear ev­ery sound. My grand­son sug­gested

I use some noise-abat­ing head­phones and lis­ten to med­i­tat­ing mu­sic and this seems to work well for me. I usu­ally fall asleep read­ing my book. It’s so calm­ing and also helps me with stress and anx­i­ety so I rec­om­mend any­one give it a try. ■ Count­ing back­wards from 1,000 works for me. As the num­ber gets lower, I start to drift off. ■ I keep a pen and notepad by my bed and if I’m ly­ing awake think­ing of some­thing I must re­mem­ber to do, I write it down then I can for­get about it and go to sleep.
