A Good Day Starts at Night
Here’s a truth that no one would dispute: Nothing feels better than getting a good night’s sleep! But more than 70-million Americans can attest to the fact that getting that 7-8 hours of quality sleep on a regular basis is easier said than done. The science of how we sleep is a complex study involving our neurotransmitters – those are the chemicals that tell us when to sleep and when to wake up. Fact is, the vast majority of people don’t have trouble falling asleep; rather, they have trouble STAYING asleep. Sleep Maintenance Insomnia is by far the most common type of sleep disorder in the U.S. Sadly, as much as 70% choose sleepless nights without medication, rather than risking potential dependence or side effects of traditional prescription sleep aids. Talk to you doctor about SILENOR®, the first and only breakthrough insomnia treatment that for the very first time, works to help keep you asleep throughout the night WITHOUT risk of dependency or residual side effects. And watch as Dr. Heith Durrence, sleep science expert, shares his Sleep Tip of the Day and how you can create a sleep friendly environment!
