If anyone reading this is an insomniac, I want to share with you the fantastic solution my friend Naomi taught me that has virtually eliminated my insomnia: audiobooks. I download them on my mp3 player (a sansa clip that cost $45 and is conveniently tiny), put in my earbuds, set the sleep timer to automatically shut off power in 20 minutes, and invariably doze off before the machine does. Something about having the distraction from my own racing thoughts that a book provides, while lying down with my eyes closed (as opposed to sitting up with the light on to read a physical book, which always just kept me awake), makes it super-soporific for me. If you have a library card and your local library has a website equipped for it (most do), you can download audiobooks for free! I do it on: ebooks.nypl.org. They have a great selection.
