Just a quick survey for fun!

1) Does counting sheep help you fall asleep at night?
2) do you count out loud or in your head?
3) Do you actually visualize the sheep in your mind as you count?
4) How old are you? Guy or girl?

@compuwiz-mark,
1) Does counting sheep help you fall asleep at night? Oddly I have never tried counting sheep before. Usually when I have trouble falling asleep, I have too much on my mind and sheep are the farthest thing to contemplate at the time.
2) do you count out loud or in your head? If I did, I probably count in my head.
3) Do you actually visualize the sheep in your mind as you count? Why count sheep if you don't try to visualize them.
4) How old are you? Guy or girl? 41 and guy.

If I can't sleep, I read a history type book. I'm interested in history, but in the middle of the night it will put me right to sleep.

I count but not sheep. According to Patrick in a recent episode, one counts breaths, but only to a count of two: Inhale, "one," exhale, "two"; tho after some practice at this one might consider counting to, say, four. Extending this method one might use A, B; Mon., Tue; Jan., Feb; He, She

….then mixing or alternating in various ways. For instance one might employ a basecount of three, the third in a pause between breaths: He, She, It

Latter. I'd suppose the former counterproductive

Quote:
3) Do you actually visualize the sheep in your mind as you count?
Not applicable in my case but I'd suppose moving images might have a contrary effect. However controversial, as Tsar says, "Why count sheep if you don't try to visualize them."

Eighty-two (I think)
