Dreamland word drill as simple as A-B-C says BC professor

Can’t sleep? This sounds like a lot of work but then it doesn’t matter if you drift off with the job unfinished. BC professor Luc Beaudoin says think of a word like “Bird” and then try to make a list of words starting with each letter of the word. Of course, you won’t get beyond B unless there’s something seriously clinical about your persistent waking state. For those who can drop off in an (um) wink with a deep breath or too, none of this is necessary.  CBC
