We all dream of the perfect night sleep and waking up fully restored and ready to face the following day. Sleep is as important to your health as a balanced diet and regular exercise. It can affect you both physically and mentally. However, as many as 40% of adults experience insomnia each year with the direct cost of treatment as well as indirect cost (including lost productivity) adding up to $30-$35 billion annually. One in ten American adults experience chronic or persistent insomnia.
