Oh what a day, in bed by eleven
my body's so tired, i need sleep hours seven
my legs are all twitchy, the muscles are sore
i don't want the day to go on anymore

as i lay there just waiting, what do i find?
my body's switched off but not so my mind
as i toss and i turn, make the bed such a mess
all i'm wanting is peace and a jolly good rest

was it caffeine in tablets i'd taken for flu?
as i lay there wondering, if only i knew
was it oil in the burner? i need to know
i just want my sleep, i'm so tired, it shows

so two hours later i'm up and about
im tired and grumpy, the sleep's gone ...no doubt
some tea and some biscuits do settle my mood
but i know that i really dont need any food

i play games for a while to divert my mind
it's boring and hopefully helps to unwind
as i lay in my bed to try once again
some words fill my head and i reach for the pen

i'm scribbling endlessly, the words just keep showing
like the stream to the river, so quick and flowing
by the end of the sixth verse i find myself yawning
i dont want to see the day light dawning

and so to the end of my poem for sleep
i'm wishing for slumber incredibly deep
in the morning i'll mail this over to you
i hope you slept well, my best wishes to you.

Read a book and do NOT have a HOT bath just before bed, you should be cool when trying to sleep


I agree about reading, but a hot bath always makes me sleep

I believe your head shouldn't be warm... summat like that... hang on i'll google

Ahhhh i seee... take a hot bath 90 mins to 2 hrs before bed it's the cooling that encourahes sleep

This is because your body temperature has a strong influence on how fast you fall asleep. A night's sleep is normally proceeded by a slight drop in body temperature and scientists have established that this drop in temperature tells your body to go to sleep.
The theory behind taking a hot bath is to raise your body temperature artificially before allowing it to drop again as it adjusts to the cooler environment of your room. The trick, says Martin, is to take a bath one to two hours before bedtime and keep your bath temperature warm, rather than hot.
"A hot bath will keep your body temperature raised, making you hot and uncomfortable. A warm bath will raise your temperature before allowing your body to cool down to the temperature comfortable for sleep," he says.
