Easing into Sleep by Dr. Emmett Miller, MD
Sleep is something we should all be really good at doing – after all, we were born knowing how to do it. The problem is that we are living in an era where there is so much stress that our nervous systems have been shifted to a hyper-vigilant mode. You may have finished everything you could get done at the end of the day, but as soon as you try to sleep, your mind, thinking that you are still under a scary physical threat, keeps you awake so that you won’t miss the cue of an impending attack by a saber-toothed tiger. Or you are kept awake trying to problem-solve (you would call it "worrying").
This gentle guided imagery offers suggestions that will help lull you into restorative sleep and create the tomorrow you want. Expertly written and narrated by Dr. Emmett Miller, MD, Easing into Sleep will help you to turn off mind-chatter, strengthen your spirit, and slip into the sleep you need to achieve your maximum potential of health and performance. And, it’s perfect for those with chronic illness, in hospital, or under stress.
