Get 10 Tips to Lower Blood Pressure.

Our Co-Founder, Erez Gavish, yesterday published an article in the Huffington Post that I would like to share with you today.“I suffered most in the dark hours after midnight, when my desire for sleep, my raging thirst for it, would drive me into temporary insanity. On the worst nights, my mind would turn into a mad dog that snapped and gnawed itself.”These words by Pagan Kennedy in the New York Times strikingly describe her struggles with severe insomnia. She vividly describes what is a literal nightmare for those who cannot sleep; the torturous musings of their own minds which breed a cycle of frustration and anxiety.Like so many sleeplessness sufferers, Kennedy turned to doctors for help who time and again prescribed medications that continually failed her. Her story is similar to many.In our research into sleeplessness, we have found that the vast majority of suffers site anxiety and a ‘racing mind’ as the reason they cannot sleep.Not finding relief in medications or attempts to lull herself to sleep with mental games and distractions, Kennedy began to imagine a machine that would ‘do her thinking for her’ so that she could sleep. From her desperation came inspiration and Kennedy took matters into her own hands.She rigged a device to distract her brain so that she could sleep. Sound crazy? It’s not. It is exactly what she needed. Here’s why:Racing thoughts are what is called high neural sympathetic activity, which simply means that your brain is ‘on’ in a way that keeps you alert. Some people have an incredibly difficult time turning ‘off’, which is why they lie in bed counting sheep, going over their day, and hating their own minds.The problem with turning off one’s mind is that the mind is needed to do the work. The conscious effort of trying to turn off, keeps the switch on. Kennedy succeeded in distracting her own brain by listening to audio books that were just the right level of interesting, yet not overly stimulating. Her distracted brain was then able to drift into sleep. Click Here To Read The Full Article
