Most adults have experienced insomnia or sleeplessness at one time or another in their lives. An estimated 30-50% of the general population are affected by insomnia, and 10% have chronic insomnia.

Insomnia is a symptom, not a stand-alone diagnosis. By definition, insomnia is "difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both." Although most of us know what insomnia is and how we feel and perform after one or more sleepless nights, few seek medical advice. Many people remain unaware of the behavioral and medical options available to treat insomnia.

Insomnia affects all age groups. Among older adults, insomnia affects women more often than men. The incidence increases with age.

Stress most commonly triggers short-term or acute insomnia. If you do not address your insomnia, however, it may develop into chronic insomnia.

Quality Sleep is Elusive

More than 60 million Americans have problems achieving it.
Twenty-five percent take a sleep aid to accomplish it. And it costs the nation an estimated $35 billion annually to treat it.
Not only can this challenge make your nights long and restless, it can also mean lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, blurry vision, irritability and memory loss during the day.

If the challenge persists without some type of intervention, it can lead to depression, poor health and accidents. And while prescription sleep aids are much better than they were decades ago many still have significant warnings regarding risk of dependency and side affects.

It's never been more important to seek natural sleep aids.

Kids With Insomnia

Insomnia in adults is a very common disorder. An occasional bout, a spell that lasts for weeks - and sometimes chronic insomnia that drags on for years --- all those can cause varying amount of sleep deprivation with its inherent dangers and discomfort.

Children can also suffer from insomnia. If you have a child who's restless every night, who awakens unrefreshed or irritable, then he or she may be a victim of childhood insomnia, and just as miserable as adult sufferers.

While, with adults, its sometimes hard or impossible to come up for the cause of the sleeplessness, with children there's usually a very obvious cause. Find that cause, eliminate it and you will be well on the way to curing the insomnia.

Stress just like adults, children can suffer from stress, and it's can be a cause of insomnia. If you have a child suffering from sleepless nights, take a look at his or her life. How are things at school? Is the household in the midst of financial or marital problems? Is your child being pestered by the bully down the street? You bet your life kids worry, more than you'd believe. Try to help with the problems.

Constipation or upset tummy? Something as simple as a bit of a stomach problem can cause occasional restlessness. Adults suffer from the same thing, so that's easy to understand. Is your child eating and eliminating properly? If not, could be a problem.
Pain, is your child in pain? Fibromyalgia strikes indiscriminately - young or old.
Children can also suffer from a common problem called growing pains. Or even muscle cramps from a day of sports or playing too hard can be a cause of discomfort and sleeplessness.

Beijing Olympics watchers lose sleep over games

Are those Olympic rings ... under your eyes?

Do you find yourself engrossed by coverage of mixed-doubles badminton, team sabre or lightweight double scull rowing in the middle of the night?

Have you mastered a balance beam dismount off the side of your couch or attempted the butterfly stroke in your bathtub?

Call it Olympic fanaticism, bleary-eyed passion or simply China fever. As you stumble through work this week, know you're not the only one living in a time zone 13 hours ahead of your own.
Round-the-clock coverage and live late-night viewings have turned Dallas residents into workplace zombies, from Taiwanese fans secretly rooting for swimming superman Michael Phelps to North Texas athletes transfixed by Nastia Liukin's acrobatics.

Beyond the usual feats of mouth-gaping athleticism, the 2008 Beijing Olympics have produced a unique blend of political volleys, cultural pride and sleeplessness that accompanies today's 24-7 access.
"Do I believe my 15-year-old daughter should be up until 4 in the morning with a Red Bull watching swimming a week before school starts?" said Fort Worth resident Tricia Alley. "Absolutely. It's history."
She's less excited about her husband's obsession with the U.S. women's beach volleyball competitors.

An Efficient and Affordable Way to Relax

There are many different ways to release stress and promote health. For some people, exercise is the best way to burn off some steam and generate feel-good endorphins. For others, a day at the spa under the hands of a masseuse is the best ways to loosen tense muscles. And for people with extremely high levels of anxiety, a doctor might even prescribe medication to help them deal with the stress. Although effective, all of these remedies require time, special skills, or money though.

If you are looking for an affordable and universal treatment for stress, maybe you should give relaxation music a try. Relaxation music works because everything in the environment leaves an impact on our emotional, mental and physical state. In the same way that lively music gets your feet tapping, peaceful music can lull your muscles and your mind into soothing relaxation. And, unlike spa treatments, exercise and doctors visits, it doesn't cost very much time or money to listen to the right music. After all, once you have a CD player, an ipod, or a computer, you can listen to soft music while you putter around the house, drive in the car, or fall asleep in your bed. And, unlike a massage or a prescription that eventually run out, a CD can be played over and over again for as long as you need it.

A few skeptics believe that relaxation music seems too simple and easy to really be a viable solution, but its benefits have been scientifically tested and proved on several occasions. For example, doctors have been exploring its benefits for several years now and, in many studies, they have found that relaxation music accelerates healing and growth in their patients. It can also help people with insomnia or high levels of energy relax enough to fall asleep.

Relaxation music also has the ability to impact emotional moods. This means that the right kind of music can dispel melancholy and replace it with contentment and happiness. Consequently, relaxation music can be a wonderful tool for lonely or depressed individuals. Any kind of soft, smooth, and peaceful music will probably be able to help consumers relax, but certain kinds are better suited for certain activities. That's why there are companies who have developed unique products for every need in the market. This enables consumers to hone in on the service they need and save money.
