The average person spends a third of their life sleeping – or trying to sleep. If your weeks are a constant slog, try our round-up of sleep-inducing gear to take back the night


What: The Sleep Book: How to Sleep Well Every Night

Who: Dr Guy Meadows, published by Orion How much: £7.99

After spending years working in the sleep research labs of London’s Charing Cross and Royal Brompton hospitals, Dr Guy Meadows discovered that no matter how hard an insomniac tries to get to sleep, no matter how rigid the routine or how many mind control techniques they experimented with, they’ll never cure their affliction. Instead, through over 12,000 hours spent with over 2,000 insomniacs, he learnt that it’s only when you learn to ‘let go’ and accept that you can’t sleep that it will eventually come to you. In the UK, over 30 per cent of people suffer with sleep issues of some form, with insomnia being the most commonly reported mental health complaint – so it’s a big problem for many. While popping sleeping pills or switching rooms may help, they’re short-term coping mechanisms, and do nothing to solve the root problem. Using mindfulness techniques and ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), The Sleep Book’s five-week plan will help you to discover the reason for your sleep trouble, accept the things you can’t change and build a new sleeping pattern that works each night.

About Winq

The new October/November issue of Winq is stuffed with gay goodness. We’ve got an exclusive interview and cover with disco-pop queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor and a second cover featuring Ricky Martin. Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back and better than ever on new album Familia, while Puerto-Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin reminds us why he’s still the king of Latin pop (and as smouldering as ever). Elsewhere we meet the UK’s only out jockey, chat with actor Mark Gatiss, celebrate 50 years of Coming Out with author Jeffrey Weeks, and get to grips with Anohni’s politically-charged new album. Plus a bumper wedding section and Karl Lagerfeld in our business section. The wait is over - Winq is the luxury lifestyle magazine for gay men.
