Sleep Sense

How to catch those elusive zzzzzz
by Paul Freedman

We all know how tricky and elusive sleep can be. Even when we’re just about dead-on-our-feet with fatigue, sleep doesn’t necessarily romp up like a puppy when called. It won’t be rushed, urged, forced or rescheduled …
And we all know what it’s like dragging ourselves through a long, tough day after a badly-broken night. (Never mind a string of ‘em!) Sleep. It’s one of the few things that unites us. We all need it. We all do it. And oh-so-many of us wish we could do it better, right? So, it was with real interest that we saw a new book come across the desk … ‘SLEEP SENSE’ by Dr Katharina Lederle, MSc, PhD.

"The most caring, loving, sensitive, balanced article on MARRIAGE I’ve read in a long time!"

- Brian

"Your magazine should be given to every couple who gets married. I’m sure it would help them – and probably save a lot of divorces."

- Jeff

"My husband never reads this kind of thing, but Grapevine’s cover caught his eye. He sat down, devoured the whole thing, and then said to me, ‘That’s what we’re missing – I think we should get some counselling’ …"


"Your last edition was so positive and helpful and optimistic – a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel at a time when my life seemed so disappointing. I’m sure other people found it the same."


"Your latest edition on DEPRESSION really hit the spot, and helped me with some pressing needs in my personal life. I have never before felt my experience could be understood or appreciated by anyone else. Now I feel no longer alone with that lonely problem."


"I find it impossible to read most things that come through my letterbox – but I never miss Grapevine. You reach me because you are real. Thank you for your honesty and your guts to stick with it."


"Thanks for all the relationship help you offer in Grapevine. Now that I know I can change old patterns, I feel much stronger inside."
