The Wall Street Journal reports that Academy Award winning actor Jeff Bridges,65, has produced a series of tapes to aid sleep onset. He has created a collection of music and sounds that the Academy Award-winning actor has created for listeners to help lull them to sleep. Jeff donates 100% of the fees he charges for these tapes to assist hunger in the United States. Not sure what the evidence is that any tapes or spoken word can promote sleep but Jeff sounds sure and that’s what matters. I listened to a bit of it during this blog and dozed off (only kidding….). Perhaps famous actors like Jeff could spread the word that insomnia is not simple and may have major health consequences like hypertension.
Personally I preferred his famous Dad’s acting in the TV series of my youth “Sea Hunt” and the top comedy of the 1970’s Flying High or Airplane (in the US).
