Hi Susan, This is such an interesting sleep intervention. As soon as I read your post and the linked article, I g]began pr timing it. The first few times I tried this I used a word. Now, like you, I randomly select a letter, and if I need a new one, I pick another. Very simple. I do find it relaxing, and think it is helping me fall back to sleep quickly when I wake up in the night. I haven’t tried the app yet.SusanJ wrote: Interesting about the app. Haven't tried it, mostly because I can get back to sleep within about 3 letters now. I've even quit using a word and just start at some random letter in the alphabet.

SusanJ wrote:My advice would be to pick a word that doesn't repeat a letter, so instead of "bedtime", I use "daisy" because if you run out of "E" words while working through "bedtime", the second "E" can be annoying. ;) And have a spare word in mind in case you get through the first word and are still awake. I had to use my second word just once.
