Quick write up from the BBC.

Researchers have shown just 45 minutes of relaxing music before bedtime can make for a restful night.

The Taiwanese researchers studied the sleeping patterns of 60 elderly people with sleep problems.

This makes sense. In our media driven world our bodies are constantly bombarded by images and jarring sounds. Almost all "sleep guides" I've checked out (I'm mildly insomniatic) have suggested removing yourself from lights (like computer monitors and TV's) at least half an hour (something about confusing the body like it's sunlight or something). What better way to compliment that than adding a little light Benny Goodman or Ella Fitzgerald?
