Sleep Problems : Solutions for Baby Boomers
And Retirees, Adults, Teenagers and Children!
Tossing and turning. Tossing and turning for ages. Then eventually you do get to sleep and what happens? You wake up, look at the clock and………………….Oh No! You’ve only slept for an hour!
Doesn’t it drive you to despair? You just can’t sleep properly.
No refreshing, sound sleep through the night for you!
This plays havoc with you (and your partner), as you can’t sleep and become increasingly anxious and stressed.
You have a sleep problem.
Eventually you did get some sleep, but it was very restless and you kept waking up, possibly several or many times, and after this broken sleep, you felt “flat” and tired. That is very understandable and what usually happens!.
This lack of sleep means your body hasn’t had the chance to experience deep restorative sleep of any significance.
You want relief for this sleep problem!
There are many factors to consider regarding any sleeping problems and issues you may have. Most important is your health, fitness, age, and the stress of issues being faced in life. In other words, sleep problems may be the sign that there are other issues in your life that may be influencing your sleep.
We covered many of these issues in the Sleep page, but they are worth repeating.
Okay, so let’s reflect on your behaviour in a typical day and see how those activities or issues may be contributing to why you can’t sleep well, and have a sleep problem. With medications it is wise not to change it without consulting your doctor, but other aspects from this list, you can probably do something about, with positive benefit.
1. Do you usually go to bed to sleep or to read?
2. Do you listen to the radio or to music?
3. Are you on any medication?
4. Have you checked the medication for side effects regarding sleeping?
5. Do/did you have a nap or two during the day?
6. Do you exercise by gardening, swimming, walking, yoga, or classes etc?
7. Do you drink coffee, cola or other caffeine drinks or alcohol after your mid-day meal?
8. Life usually has many challenges, but do you feel particularly stressed, anxious or depressed?
9. Are you ill?
Our behaviour and habits influence our brainwaves and our brainwaves influence our emotions, feelings and behaviour, including and especially our sleep.

We have have 5 levels of brainwave frequencies.
From the following information you can see that if you are fearful of something, or stressed or anxious, you will most certainly be having Gamma and or Beta brainwaves which will keep you aroused.
So for relaxing and stress or anxiety reduction we need Alpha waves leading into Theta and for a great sleep, Delta waves as well.
Gamma waves 40 Hz or + fear, consciousness, problem solving, perception
Beta waves 13-40 Hz active, anxious thinking, arousal, active concentration
Alpha waves 7-13 Hz relaxation, pre-sleep, pre-awake drowsiness
Theta waves 4-7 Hz dreams, REM sleep, deep meditation
Delta waves 4 hz and lower deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness
Binaural Beats, and much more
You don’t need an understanding of our brainwaves to overcome sleep problems. However they are central for what follows next.
You may have come across the terms,” binaural beats” and “entrainment”. There are products in the market that utilize these to induce changes in your brainwaves and thus create a more relaxed state. They usually use classical music to achieve this. We are unique in that while incorporating both binaural beats and brainwave entrainment into our products, this is only the beginning!
