Over 40 million people. Every year. That is the number who suffer from insomnia, in the United States alone. It’s just a little “missed sleep,” right? Maybe a little cranky in the morning, but nothing that a cup of coffee can’t fix. Right?
First, insomnia is incredibly frustrating. When you want to sleep, but can’t, it is frustrating. Especially if everyone else is peacefully slumbering everywhere else in your house!
Second, a lack of sleep is detrimental to our mental and physical well-being. Each year, more studies show how important sleep is. It is implicated in anxiety and depression. It is tied to higher rates of accidents. It contributes to high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, weight gain, and many other chronic issues.
Let alone that crankiness that can make the day so hard!
In this episode of the Thriveology Podcast, I discuss curing insomnia with Ruth Stern. After suffering from insomnia for 19 years, Ruth set out to find a solution. A trained therapist, Ruth turned to an energy psychology technique to help herself to heal from insomnia. An overnight cure? Nope. But it worked. And has worked for many others.
Listen in as Ruth Stern and I discuss curing insomnia.
