This helped me sleep!

My boss gave me this book, because she knows I have insomnia. I wake up almost every night around three or four and can't go back to sleep. I tried the exercises on the CD, and they really helped calm my racing mind. The breath work they teach is simple and effective! I also enjoyed hearing about all the small ways that you can help improve your sleep environment. The research presented by both authors was unique and informative.
