cold brain for sleep

If you didn't read the articles on the internet about cooling your brain for better sleep you must have been under a rock for the last 2 weeks.  I actually suffer from periodic bouts of insomnia, the kind that involves me not getting my mind to quiet down long enough for me to go to sleep.  On Sunday night I had a reason to give this theory a go, and for me it looks like bullshit.

I had two freezer icepacks on my head for about 45 minutes, and still away 3 hours later.  I realize I didn't have their special fancy cooling cap on, but I didn't feel any benefit from cooling my noggin.

Anybody else give this a try?  I would be curious to see a group of people independently try this out to form some sort of a random sample.


  1. I thought yawning was for cooling your brains. No i haven't tried this but thanks for sharing!

  2. i'm about to sleep now, so i'll check it out.

  3. I was going to try this tonight but I don't have any ice packs. I'll buy some tomorrow, give it a test, and let you know my results.
