Your sleep problems solved

Picture this: You're so tired, your heavy lids lower further and further down dry, bloodshot eyes. Slowly, you groan as you rise from the couch and sloppily get ready for bed. Stretching and snuggling under the covers, thoughts of sweet dreams spread a sleepy smile across your face.

Then it happens – your brain switches to ON! Your thoughts race frantically about ways to get back to sleep, around and around in circles, looping between stimulating thoughts of your day, your relationships, your home, your life . . . and the fact that you’re not asleep.
