SECRET: THE BED-OF-NAILS POWER NAP

"When I'm tired I rest on a Shakti Mat for 15 minutes," says psychophysiologist Dr. Nerina Ramlakhan, author of Tired But Wired: How To Overcome Sleep Problems (£12.99, Souvenir Press). "It's a padded mat covered with 6,000 spikes. They work directly on the body's acupressure points to relax the nervous system. You lie on it - perferably naked - and at first it feels like being stung by millions of little bees. That only lasts for about 30 seconds, then your body goes into a deep state of relaxation."
