The Department Store. A Sleep Story for grown ups



The Department Store is an insignificant little tale laced with hypnotic suggestions and tried-and-trusted language patterns. It is designed to help even hardened insomniacs go to sleep. This Sleep Story for grown ups ponders the perplexing layout of modern department stores. Many of the older stores are like mazes as they have grown organically and it’s so easy to get lost in them.  Modern stores are designed with the help of psychologists who deliberately make your journey around the store pleasurable and LONG. The longer you stay in the store the more likely you are to make a purchase.  Many stores can be disorienting and many can be frustrating.

22 Minutes long

This Sleep Story for grown ups is 22 minutes long, though few people are still awake at the end.  As usual you are reminded to only listen when it is safe and certainly do not listen if driving or operating machinery.  Ideally you should listen at night or your usual bedtime and be prepared to sleep.
