045 – A Sleepy Bedtime Reading – The Swampers


Of sleep, psychics and scoundrels

Psychic or charlatan, this story will help you sleep
The paraphernalia of the fortune teller? Are some for real? Maybe, but many are charlatans.

Sleep comes when the mind is unstressed, so let’s wash away the tension with a bedtime story, told in a way that won’t keep you too focused.

Believe what you will about psychics and faith healers, many are not what they seem. But will you find sleep comes for you during the story of what happens to Professor Mortikali as he does some palm and tarot readings. Before getting a visit from a mysterious stranger who turns out to be all too familiar

From ‘The Swampers’ by Hume Nisbet

A note about the stories

As I work in the hospitality industry the next few weeks are going to be very busy for me. I won’t be able to do much researching and writing, but I won’t leave you restless. I will have a selection of cold readings for your insomnia cures every week, right on schedule.

We Put 5 Sleepy Teas To The Test – Huffington Post UK

Personally I’m a fan of rooibos tea at bedtime, but there are a lot of sleepy teas out there to help restless sleepers get a good night. The linked article tries out several. Even if the specific ones mentioned are not available, it may inspire you to explore the options available to you. And of course, once you’ve settled down with a nice herbal tea, put Sleepy Time Tales on in your ears. 🙂

” Getting enough sleep can be tricky. Shelves of gadgets and gizmos promise to deliver the holy eight hours, but herbal tea is one of the original sleep aides. With calming ingredients such as camomile, lemon and lavender, these brews promise to leave you relaxed and ready for lights out. A simple cure to your bedtime woes or too good to be true? “

Honestly I’ve never really been a fan of chamomile and other traditional sleepy teas. But one thing us insomniacs understand is that not everything works for everyone.
