Psychographic profiling wins elections

Posted by S D O'Prey on June 17, 2017 at 12:00am 1 Comment

The world is changing. In fact, it has already changed.the days where the likes of Don Draper and the creative MADMEN would dream up one or two ad campaigns to win your hearts and minds and ultimately a share of your wallet are over.

Whilst the fun and creativity are still there the guesswork isn't. Now in digital, direct and data-driven marketing, we can not only take the guesswork out of our marketing campaigns but by utilising behavioural science and psychographics we can tailor that… Continue

What to say

Posted by Vincent D on June 4, 2017 at 8:02pm 0 Comments

At the moment I do not know the words. The world is not what I recognise and humanity seems so inhumane. What next. What else. What more. When will the world wake up and reconnect with eachother, with the Earth, with nature and the universe. Whatever you do on to one you do on to all.

Technology update: Wanna Cry Ransomware link to guidance and advice

Posted by S D O'Prey on May 20, 2017 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

Wanna Cry Ransomware is creating havoc around the world. Having you files encrypted is no fun for organisations and especially as individuals who cannot afford $350 or whatever the fee is to free up your files.

By far the best protection against ransomware attacks is to have all of your files backed up regular on a secure drive not connected to your computer and to regular run the Microsoft updates. 

Also be careful not to click on suspect links either in emails or on websites…


Developing your own Metacognitive NLP switches for insomnia

Posted by S D O'Prey on May 12, 2017 at 5:00am 0 Comments

So far we have discussed some fo the current treatments for insomnia and some of the elephants in the room as well as some of how we got to where we are today. That is the Psychosocial Metacognitive NLP theory for living with Insomnia.

It’s important to note that what I am not talking about here is a treatment for insomnia or a cure in any way shape or form. You may, as I have, gain benefits in the area of sleep but the main aim is to teach you tools to reposition and reframe the way…

My time in South Korea(Pt 1)

Posted by Jay Lane on May 10, 2017 at 7:22am 1 Comment

Looking back I wish I would have learned more hangul or written more about my time there. I had spent 2 years in South Korea and honestly it was mostly a haze filled with binge drinking and well more binge drinking. Drinking alcohol in Korea is socially acceptable as is eating kimchi on a daily basis. These aspects in Korean life was just a normal day to day aspect in how they live. Some days I would just walk and explore the different districts by myself or with…


How To Feel Nothing

Posted by Jay Lane on May 9, 2017 at 2:03am 0 Comments

Insomnia, how is it that only a small number of people suffer from sleepless nights. To be awake full of thought and to be alive and not. What about the people that don't seek help or treatment, over 6 billion souls on our planet and an unknown voiceless population that continue to suffer in silence. The feeling of being still yet alone in space thinking about everything and nothing at the same time. Asking yourself where…

Insomnia and Longevity

Started by Xiola Jane in Uncategorized. Last reply by Xiola Jane Apr 16, 2013. 8 Replies

I found this in the Insomnia entry on Wikipedia under Epidemiology quite a while back:"As long as a patient refrains from using sleeping pills there is little to no increase in mortality associated with insomnia but there does appear to be an increase in longevity. This is reassuring for patients with insomnia in that despite the sometimes unpleasantness of insomnia, insomnia itself appears to be associated with increased longevity."At that time I was still taking benzos and Trazadone for sleep…Continue

What's On Your Mind When You Can't Sleep?

Started by Gunn in lack of sleep. Last reply by Gunn May 11. 102 Replies

I wanted to put up a thread where you can discuss whatever is on your mind...Many times you wanna talk about something but are restricted to certain topics.  Early AM are the times when you seem to be deepest in thought, When the world seems to slow down and the still of the night surrounds you. So I figured why not use that period to type whatever is on your mind, Maybe it will help you "sleep" afterwards sometimes you may need to get something off your chest before you're able to relax. It…Continue

Vincent's twits

About is a FREE social network, blog site, and chat forum for people that cannot sleep or with sleep related issues that they live with. It’s a place to chat, post blogs and join in forum debates and discussions about you experiences with insomnia, sleeplessness and life in general.

It is not a place offering you a cure. We open debates and discuss our ideas and theories as well as things that have and have not worked well for us but we do not try and “fix you” because first off we don’t think you are broken.

But its not just about insomnia. It is a place to express yourself creatively if you wish, express your thoughts and opinions on what is going on in the world.. the things that are keeping you up at night..

We do believe that the first step to living a healthy, enjoyable and rewarding life with insomnia is learning acceptance of it as part of your life whilst not letting define your life. But from there it really is up to you as to what works for you as an individual.

We bring our experience of 20+ years living with insomnia ourselves as well as the studies into areas of psychology, neuro-linguistic programming, meditation and sociology to see if we can shed some light onto what is happening and maybe give some ideas as to tips and tricks that may help you.

Unfortunately the owners of this site cannot be on here managing it 24/7 and so may not be able to be on the live chat at all times. As this is not funded by a business we have day jobs to do and so as of yet have not found a way to be on here when the majority of our users in the US are because we are based in the UK.

We suggest the best way to be a part of the community is to share your experiences on your blog on your personal page. You can also customise your page to suit your tastes and show a bit of individuality.

We expect respect for all. Keep the content relatively clean and mostly enjoy being part of a community that is growing in voice about the condition of insomnia. Please post and share our content around the social media outlets around the web and let the message be heard.

Most of all enjoy in the acceptance of your insomnia and the knowledge that it does not define you.

Please note: you will never receive any emails from us asking you to buy a product or service, or for your bank account details in any way shape or form, if we were in this for the money we would have left years ago, if you receive anything like this it is SPAM and should be deleted and reported to Vincent D either on my profile page or through a direct message in the internal mailing system.  Thank you.
