Insomnia; it's enough to keep you up at night. Kidding aside, the condition is considered an epidemic (30% in US are effected) by the nation's Center for Disease Control(CDC) who site numerous side effects associated with sleep deprivation, not the least of which is nodding off while driving an automobile. There are many so called cures for the condition including the extreme of prescribed medications. But I'm here to tell you about a way (drug-less and free of charge) to have a whispering woman (or in some cases male) woo you to relaxation and sleep. It's a cult phenomenon called ASMR.
While ASMR might not suit everyone, it is worth trying to find some artist(s) who may trigger you and sooth you away from the tossing and turning of a restless night. Maybe one day more data will reveal what the sensation can do on a biofeedback level and it may be a key to lowering the health risks of sleep deprivation. Until then, try tuning in so you can finally tune out.
