    I'm just starting week 3 and am looking for something to do when I find myself downstairs during one of my “nocturnal breaks”. As reading is considered too active, is knitting allowed? I'm trying to give myself options apart from music and the tv!

    I saw an ad online from a Dr. of Music who said he could reverse hearing loss and get rid of tinnitus using sound therapy. He said that tinnitus causes scaring on the brain and results in dementia but that they have a product that removes that scaring. Does tinnitus cause dementia/Alzheimer's and scaring in the brain? Are their claims valid?

    At the end of week 2 of sleep restriction. My efficiency is hovering around 80% but the prof says I could even extend it. At the moment I'm getting 6 out of 7 hrs 40. Should I maybe even try to reduce the window to 7 hours? A lot of convention about SRT says to only increase at 90%

    How accurate should my sleep diary be. I'm caught between clockwatching, which keeps me awake, and getting a reasonably accurate picture on my sleep diary. as soon as I check the clock in the small hours, that's usually it. Also, I have a horrible surge of adrenaline to check the clock and often give in it is so strong. Do I need to ride these urges out?
