  • Thankyou Vee for your reply

  • Many years ago, I was feeling very low after being made redundant, as a casualty of the peace dividend with the collapse of communism. It was 1991 and unemployment was 2.5 million, so trying to get a job was very difficult. I started yoga evening classes and found it a fantastic way to relax and unwind.

    You could also lie flat on your bed and try to gradually relax your whole body, starting with fingers, then hands, arms, shoulders, feet, ankles, legs, ending up with eyes, forehead and jaw. Play some soft relaxing music and breath slowly whilst relaxing. I find myself dropping off to sleep sometimes and wake within half hour, totally refreshed. This was a technique I was taught after major heart surgery.

  • I am insomniac at the moment and find that listening to relaxation CDs help. Alcohol doesn't work and can make you feel worse after anyway.
