Here’s an argument for giving working adults “naptime” during the afternoon, similar to kindergarteners.

There are two easy steps for helping many people obtain a better night’s sleep. Here are two methods that I found to be extremely effective when I started to overcome my sleep disorder.
1) USE TECHNOLOGY TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
Don’t want to miss that favorite television show that starts at 10:00 p.m.? Well, that is what DVRs and VCRs are for. DVRs are wonderful in that you can set up a regular, scheduled taping every time your favorite show airs. You can also easily record the remainder of a show if you find yourself getting sleepy. If you don’t have a DVR, then get one. Most cable and satellite providers will give you the box for free, and the monthly charge is typically around $7.
Use modern technology to your advantage. Your sleep is too important.
2) WRITE DOWN YOUR PROBLEMS
I am a firm believer that by putting your thoughts to paper, it helps release them from your mind. It allows you to wake up the next day and, at that time, begin to address the issue(s). Another benefit of doing this is that you will not lose that great idea that you just had while lying in bed!
Make sure you do not go to bed with your mind racing or with problems still pending. Put them “to bed” for the night, and then you will be able to put yourself to bed – peacefully.
“Sleep Great for Life” offers an easy-to-apply procedure can help you overcome insomnia in less than 3 weeks. The book is available in both Print and e-book formats.

Are you dealing with insomnia? Do you feel that no one or nothing can help with your insomnia, and that friends and family who do not have sleep disorders simply can’t related to your problem?
Solve Your Sleep Disorder Today
In a 2007 study approximately 64 million Americans regularly suffer from insomnia each year, and there is little doubt that this massive number has grown in the past four years. Fifty-eight percent of adults in the U.S. experience symptoms of insomnia a few nights a week or more. This is a serious problem and you are not alone. The painful fact is the prescription and over-the-counter sleep aids are not a good long term solution, and in too many cases, not even a good short term solution.
Fortunately there is a break-through new book that can get you on the path to eliminating insomnia permanently from your life.
