Not getting a good night’s sleep? You’re not alone. Over 40 million Americans struggle with chronic sleep disorders, and a restless night’s sleep has just become today’s norm. That figure is not surprising considering we’re living in a 24/7 society where nothing switches off. Why sleep when you can watch cable TV, surf the net, and catch up on an endless supply of emails? Technology, jobs, stress, and toxic chemicals are all disrupting our homeostasis and as a result, our sleep is disrupted.
Sleep problems are complex and as such, there’s no cure-all pill we can take to get a better night’s sleep. If there was, you’d expect it to be one of the most sought-after drugs on the market. In order to improve your sleep, you need to start looking at what’s causing you to toss and turn in the first place.
