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

* 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
