ZELLA COMPTON: Looking afresh at our beautiful spot in the world

Have your say

Nobody can sleep properly these days. We’re all so stressed and our brains so active thinking of all those things we should have done and still need to do that we can’t just drift off into the land of nod.

So we wake up tired and get trapped in an endless cycle of never feeling fully rested.

But doctors reckon they have the solution - they’ve devised a cap filled with tubes of cold water that they claim can calm our minds.

It’s all about lowering the temperature of the pre-frontal cortex, which slows down in those who sleep well but speeds up in insomniacs.

There’s only one problem though.

Be honest, if your other half turned in for the night wearing this headgear, you wouldn’t be able to sleep for laughing would you?
