Two of my favourite books happen to be "Jane Eyre" and "Persuasion." Which just happen to be written by Charlotte Bronte and Jane Austin.
My latest relaxation technique, when I am unwinding before sleep, is to ponder what Jane Eyre packed in her trunk when she left Lowood School. As a teacher she was paid 15 pounds per annum, which even then was a pittance on the excuse she would have no expense, her room and board was covered and she "would keep no society." So what did she pack? I seldom get past a night dress and cap before I fall asleep. It is all about distracting my mind from reality.
