BACK ‘Vagaries of Sleep’, Aberdeen  Journal, 6 Sept. 1922 I don’t think people sleep any worse in modern days than they used to: probably if we could only institute exact comparisons, all the other way. As against the speed of life and the preoccupation with many things that troubled our forefathers there are improved hygienic conditions and other benefits. Most people who have studied the subject will agree, I think, that the worries of the present time of transition weigh heavily on a large portion of the community, and neurologists are being more frequently consulted about insomnia than before. This passage does not attribute insomnia to “the speed of life”, despite Ekirch claiming that it does, but to “worries of the present time of transition weigh heavily on a large portion of the community.” BACK
