With economic turmoil all over the globe, ordinary people are suffering from insomnia. After all, worrying about money is extremely stressful and we humans are most likely to fall prey to the demons of stress and anxiety at night rather than during the active, sunshine-filled hours of the day. Rather than relying on dangerous sleeping pills, some people are turning to technology and one of the most popular insomnia-fighters is the NightWave Sleep Assistant.

It works by shining a soft, pulsating blue light onto your ceiling and you simply follow the changes in the light while synchronizing your breathing with its rhythm. There are two cycles: seven minutes and 25 minutes and the light slowly dims and turns itself off. The directions suggest experimenting with the seven minute cycle first and only using the longer one if necessary.

There are multiple advantages to this simple technology

1. This is a natural sleep aid, rather than a chemical one and is clearly better for your body than any drug can ever be.

2. Drugs often become habit forming and don't work with the natural cycles of the body, whereas the NightWave Sleep Assistant does, in fact, promote natural rest. What is more basic to the human body than our own personal breathing patterns?

3. It is recommended by doctors, including the famous Dr. Oz.

4. It is totally safe for children which is reassuring to any parent who would hesitate to use prescription drugs on their young children. In fact, many children will be intrigued by what they perceive as a game and will be eager to follow the blue light.

5. It is soundless, making it non-invasive and soothing, unlike some sound machines that are   popular as sleep aids.

6. There are no wires and no electricity is needed. This makes the NightWave portable so the owner can use it to sleep anywhere, under any conditions.

7. Users claim that it doesn't disturb a bed partner in a way other technology might. Since the blue light is on the ceiling, anyone who sleeps soundly can simply close their eyes and ignore it.

8. It is definitely cheaper than using prescription sleeping pills which will cost considerable money over time.

It's always wise to try a natural method first before dragging out the "big guns" of drugs and sleep clinics. It should be considered as the first step to solve sleeping problems. Hopefully, it will be your last step.
