Turning Side to Side Until You Fall Asleep?

Rabbi Yeruchem Levovitz related, “Someone once asked me how many times I turn from side to side in my bed at night before I finally fall asleep. At first I was surprised by the such a strange question. Then the person told me he recently visited a very ill person and witnessed how that man was unable to turn from side to side by himself. I gave the matter some thought and realized something important that I had not been aware of previously. A healthy person turns around in his bed many times until he falls asleep. When he feels uncomfortable in one position, he automatically changes positions without thinking about it.” ~ Daas Chochmah Umussar
