Stories for Getting Back to Sleep
In this book, educational psychologist Diane Gillespie, PhD, uses her knowledge and understanding of stories to craft sleep scenarios designed to help people fall back to sleep in the middle of the night.
The stories are set in relaxing places conducive to sleep: cozy mountain cabins, luxurious spas, a tropical beach, an overstuffed chair in a Victorian Bed and Breakfast.
In each story, the character secures her surroundings. Then through the process of attending to peaceful details in the setting, she relaxes her body, lets worries float away and sinks deeper and deeper into stillness – until she is sound asleep.
Readers are encouraged to remember the sequence of events so that in darkness they can crawl back into bed, pull up their covers, imaging themselves in the stories and go back to sleep.
Diane dedicates this book to all the sleepless people – especially women – whose good rest we need to create a more caring, just and peaceful world. She donates 100% of the profits to Tostan, an award-winning nonprofit that is increasing the well being of communities across West Africa.
