    Reasons for insomnia – whether acute (temporary) or chronic (ongoing) – abound. Stress, anxiety, depression, physical discomfort, pain, illness, side effects from medications, schedule or lifestyle changes, and environmental triggers, are just a few things that can impact sleep. The results are numerous and can result in a never-ending downward spiral of irritability, mood swings, impaired judgement, cognitive functioning, accidents, as well as being a precursor to serious illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, aging, and more.

    Come and discover:

    * Causes for insomnia and/or interrupted sleep patterns
    * Why 8 hours may not be the correct amount of sleep for you
    * How to regain balance and establish the right sleep pattern for you
    * If age has anything to do with your sleep pattern
    * Body types that are more prone to stress and how to compensate
    * Foods that reduce stress and foods to avoid to help you sleep
    * Natural supplements or herbs that can aid in reducing stress and promoting sleep
    * Exercises, meditations, and mantras that promote relaxation
