Who’s That Knocking At Your Brain?


Sleep Disturbances

Noises are all around us when we’re trying to fall asleep. The ticking of the clock to the slamming of a door keeps us tossing and turning all night long. There are many factors that can determine why some noise is bothersome while other noise is relaxing.

“I Tossed and Turned All Night,”

“I woke up in the middle of the night and just couldn’t go back to sleep,” “I couldn’t stop thinking about this project due today, so I didn’t get any sleep.” These are common statements heard at work every day – comments made by millions of people. So, what has happened to us since our toddler years, when restful, uninterrupted sleep was the norm?
