This 90 minute movie, designed by physicians of the prestigious Mayo Clinic, came out in 2007. This DVD is especially appropriate for preppers who will want to be able to sleep well when going through a possible future disaster. Just as preppers need to store enough supplies such as food and water, they also need to be skilled at getting a good night’s sleep during difficult circumstances. Just like any other skill, sleeping well is a skill that can be learned.
Sleep deprived preppers would not be at their best during a future disaster, but this DVD also can be valuable even for people who are currently suffering from insomnia. Car accidents, for example, are twice as likely when people have been suffering from insomnia.
Sleeping well involves learning about sleep, and this DVD teaches about sleep. Insomnia problems, for example, can be caused by difficulty in falling asleep, staying asleep, or poor quality of sleep. As another example of sleep information in this movie, the cause of insomnia suffering can be lifestyle choices or underlying psychological or medical conditions. This DVD delves into all of these topics.
This DVD covers not only traditional health and wellness methods and practices, but also alternative medicine practices. Examples of traditional health and wellness methods and practices are proper diet, exercise, and weight control. Examples of alternative medicine practices are music therapy, massage, aromatherapy, meditation, yoga, and acupuncture.
This DVD makes the point that everyone is unique, and different people will require different efforts to sleep well. People who are hyperactive, for example, might have to stress the avoidance of activities such as multitasking, especially when close to bedtime, and to involve themselves in calming activities such as meditation or yoga. Conversely, people who are suffering from an overweight condition might have to stress diet discipline and exercise. This is especially true if they suffer from conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea.
There are however, many habits that everyone should practice to achieve a good night of sleep of seven to nine hours. Examples are not watching TV or drinking fluids when close to bedtime. Alcohol and caffeine especially should be avoided when close to bedtime.
The above are just some of the many concepts covered by this DVD. It would be good idea for viewers to take notes when watching this DVD.
