ACK! Help Me Go To SLEEP!!!!!!!

My health is an ongoing battle and it has wreaked havoc with my sleeping patterns. I'll spend days where I don't sleep more than an hour at a time and then I'll sleep for 20 hours straight. Needless to say, this makes having a normal life a bit of a challenge at times. Luckily I've found two things that really do help with the insomnia (and one of them will surprise you!)

I was SUPER DUPER skeptical that this would do anything other than just be relaxing background music, but it really DOES shut down the brain chatter and put you to sleep quickly and smoothly!

NeuroBeats is a portuguese brand that produces high quality audio incorporated with binaural beats to generate neural oscillations for specific needs.

All of NeuroBeats work and recommendations are according to neurotechnology and neuroscience studies.

My brain has this habit of NEVER SHUTTING UP making falling asleep trying under the best of of circumstances. On top of that, I've gotten to where I have to have all light blocked from my eyes (I wear a sleep mask) I have to be extremely cool,  I have to have white noise ( I run a fan) and I have to have some type of verbal sound like an audio book or the TV - and with the TV I'm also very picky- it has to be something with steady volume and characters who I can visualize so I have the action going like a movie in my head. I'm a freak, right?

So lucky me, we had a rolling blackout and our electricity was out when it was 95 degrees outside and I'd had pain induced insomnia and not slept for almost 2 days. I wanted nothing more than to try to get some sleep but obviously I was unable to use any of my electricity powered sleepytime aids and I was so hot I thought I'd melt. What better time to debunk this working, right? I had the MP3s on my laptop and a good 2 hours of charge on the battery, so I loaded  up Heavy Rain With Neuro Beats and took it for a ride.

Well HOLY CRAP! I was asleep within easily 15 minutes and didn't wake up until the Mister came home from work and woke me up! I don't know that I've ever been able to sleep covered in sweat in my life..... This is weaning me off of the TV habit and I sleep more deeply as well.

You do need to wear headphones to get the neurobeats effect, otherwise it will work as simply white noise. I'm planning on getting another pair of bluetooth headphones so me and the Mister can listen at the same time. Thee are a ton of different tracks to suit the needs of different listeners, if one's white sounds don't float your boat, use another one- everyone is different and find different sounds soothing. i used to have a sleep machine with bird sounds on it and it would make me insane when my boyfriend wanted to listen to the bids- that sound means WAKE UP to me and would drive me cray cray. To each his own, and with this program toy get a ton of choices!

I am extremely excited about this sleep system and can't recommend it enough!

And speaking of jacked up sleep cycles, with a few exceptions, since I began taking melatonin (at the urging of my primary care physician) my sleep has been deeper and more even and restful.  I tried Ambien for a while, but it made me do bizarre things in my sleep and I often woke up still exhausted. I'm so thrilled to have something that works without making me sleepwalk or be groggy in the morning! This all natural blend shows that once again, Mother Nature knows what's best for us. With these I fall asleep smoothly without the brain chatter that normally keeps me awake and I don't toss and turn (according to The Mister) so I'm apparently getting a more restful sleep as well. I"m not groggy when I wake up in the morning, though if you wake up to go to the bathroom you will have a bit of a lack of sea legs :-) Much better than prescription pills!
