To help myself fall asleep I sometimes play this game by myself, thinking of things from a certain category beginning with each letter of the alphabet in sequence. The tricky part now is thinking of a category I haven't done to death before: countries, cities, mammals, birds, fish, D&D monsters, D&D spells, books, movies, scientists, actors, sports, fruits, vegetables, etc, etc. I'm at the point where I end up with categories like "things to do with air travel" or "things you buy in a hardware store" or "wines from the left bank of the Gironde".

My friend who taught me this technique says he usually gets as far as about E before falling asleep. Whereas I usually run through the alphabet with about three or four different categories before my mind relaxes enough to fall asleep.
