Arianna Huffington’s Sleep Challenge 2010 is perhaps the most significant wake up call for American women since Gloria Steinem published Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions in 1983. Yet for many women, even with the best of efforts, trying to sleep better still remains a waking nightmare. Pharmaceutical firms sold $ 4.5 billion worth of sleep mediations to us in 2009, while the number of chronically sleep deprived in this country now tops 70 million and continues to climb.
For many women, being asked to adjust their sleep times and drink less caffeine simply rings hollow. They are hopelessly addicted to sleeping pills and hearing of others progress using these “tips and tricks” only makes them feel more left out and alone than they already had been before. This hopeless desperation can be a dangerous thing, because long term insomnia often leads to increased risk for heart attacks, strokes and suicide in females.
