Trouble Sleeping? You are not alone!
The sleep management Institute estimates that 30-50% of people will experience insomnia at some point in their lives. This could mean trouble falling asleep or trouble staying asleep and will almost always result in feeling tried, unfocused or moody the next day. Insomnia can be a frustrating thing to deal with and can result in decreased performance at work or school, increased risk of accidents, and an overall decrease in quality of life .
There are many different causes of insomnia, these can range from drinking too much caffeine or having poor sleep hygiene practices, to an underlying medical condition such as sleep apnea or chronic pain. It is important to understand the underlying cause of your inability to sleep. This will allow you to determine which treatments will be most effective for you. There are a number of diet and lifestyle changes that can be made to aid with sleep, as well as a huge variety of herbs and supplements.
