There have been periods of time when going to sleep and remaining asleep without nighttime medication seemed impossible.
Why is it the more 'advanced' we become technologically the harder it is for us to just plain relax, close our eyes, take a nice deep breathe, and fall peacefully to sleep? Media and pharmaceutical giants bombard the public about sleep deprivation-based research studies, constantly reminding us that our society as a whole, our ability to get enough sleep is in decline. Many are getting less sleep, with results suggesting not-so-positive outcomes: like less patience, quicker to anger, depression or emotions that can be misconstrued as aggression.

Find out what alternatives to prescribed medication are available. The more informed you are, the greater chance you have for overcoming insomnia.

Adjust the volume to a very low level, like just below the threshold of your hearing. Louder does not make it better, and even though the use of headphones would be a more effective approach, the use of speakers for 'room entrainment' has been repeatedly proven successful.
