Since I was little I have had trouble sleeping. I'll feel tired but once my head hits the pillow I can't seem to turn my mind off.
Tim Ferriss's new book Four Hour Body has a section devoted to sleep improvement. His biggest recommendation is the Philips goLITE. I guess the premise is that this bright blue light recalibrates one's circadian rhythms. Or something like that. It sounds like a placebo to me but I am willing to try anything. The major thing holding me back is the cost of the unit. List price is $200. Is this bunk?
