  • The Three Types of Insomnia

    Insomnia is, quite simply, a condition in which we don’t get enough sleep. Sometimes it is a matter of not being able to fall asleep. Sometimes it is a matter of awakening too soon, after too little sleep. And other times it is a matter of the sleep that we are actually getting being less than what we need, or what we feel we need.

The invention of the electric light neatly dovetailed with the Industrial Revolution in which most goods came to be produced in factories.

Though shift work made an enormous economic difference and increased productivity tremendously, it also introduced sleep problems for which there are no good solutions. Continue reading

  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

    Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, is an actual illness that sounds to many like something that’s been made up – a period of sadness and other symptoms brought on by a lack of sunlight.
