There are many things in life that are worse than not being able to sleep. However waking up in the middle of the night and finding your mind on full alert can be un-nerving and disruptive. Sometimes it is as a result of genuine worry, but in my case is usually self-inflicted through the intake of too much caffeine…
Counting Sheep – The Dangers of Caffeine!
Have you ever lain awake, with a restless feeling?
You study every inch of your bedroom ceiling.
The smallest little thing, grows larger than life,
You daren’t even move in case you wake your wife!
Everything is bubbling, around in your mind,
You can’t leave the worries of the day behind.
When you were younger, you could stay up all night,
Now you’re older, sleep becomes a fight.
You know a lettuce sandwich, can help you get to sleep,
So forget nocturnal coffee or you’ll end up counting sheep!
