I also like that the author included cautions that there are lots of reasons for sleep issues, and sometimes you need to make changes in your diet and behavior to get results. This is so true. Eating starchy or sweet foods at bedtime or drinking alcohol at bedtime wakes you up due to blood sugar changes later in the night, as she points out. Exercising should not be done right before bed. So many sleep problems are due to simply not knowing the things she points out in this book. Following those suggestions can give relief in many cases.
The technique in the book is easy to apply. I found I got measurable improvement in my ability to fall asleep. I have a very busy mind, and although long ago I realized that I had to stop it so I could sleep, what I didn't realize was that my subconscious mind was still going a mile a minute. Doing this technique helped me to realize that even though I was not consciously thinking about anything, my mind was going like a mad thing. The kaleidoscope method helped still it.
I also felt the author had a lot of integrity in saying that there are no guarantees that any method or remedy will work. Sleep problems are a huge issue. Sometimes something like serotonin deficiency (a growing problem) needs to be addressed. Other times, you are waking at the same time of night due to a problem with a particular organ or system. So this method may not be able to overcome physiological imbalances or 'bad' behavior. But it clearly gives results when your monkey mind is your key issue.
Steps 1 and 2 tell you to get comfortable and into a good sleeping environment. Common-sense stuff.
Step 3 tells you to commit to sleeping.
Step 4 is the actual technique they outline. Try to make a kaleidoscope from the lights you can see when you close your eyes. Focus only on these lights and (step 5) refocus yourself when you find your thoughts drifting.
I'm really happy for you if this method helps you overcome your sleep problems, but don't waste your money on this.
Thankfully, Elli Yeates' book on Fall Asleep! has given me more insight into how to get back to sleep. I bought her book several days ago because I was looking for some helpful tips and tricks concerning sleep. I have not been disappointed. It is an easy read and she explains her concept well.
Now, for the last three nights since I bought her book, I have been able to figure out how to focus on going back to sleep. Personally, I am amazed it has worked for me and am so thankful I read it.
If you have trouble sleeping, I encourage you to buy Elli's book. It's a tremendous deal at 99 cents and knowing what I know now, I would pay a lot more for it! Sleep is priceless and so are Elli's tips and technique.
For whatever reason, it worked and I will be sharing this link with my family and friends.
Here's to a good night sleep!
