Millions of people in the United States have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or feeling well rested.

Fortunately there are many healthy ways to create a better sleeping environment, improve the quality of your sleep and get more sleep.

 “You don’t have to settle for a restless night when a good night’s sleep is within your reach,” said Dr. Holly Donahue, a naturopathic doctor in New Hampshire for more than 15 years. “There is so much you can do to ‘succeed’ at better sleep.”

Using extensive experience gained in her Dover-based clinical practice, Cura’ Naturale Therapeutic Healing, Donahue has developed the customized five-week online Simple Health Sleep Training Program. The natural-based program incorporates practical, easy-to-follow advice, videos and online work to guide someone to a better night’s sleep.

 “We live in such a stimulating world that it’s hard to shut off our minds and calm our nervous systems so we can really get a restful sleep,” Donahue said. “For many people it takes a concerted mindful approach to make the transition from the pace of the real world to true relaxation.”

 Those who sign on for the program will learn to assess their current sleep habits, bedtime rituals and sleeping atmosphere, before being given the tools and guidance to make changes for a healthier, restful sleep.

 The Sleep Training Program is delivered to subscribers in a series of emails, allowing those suffering from insomnia and other sleeping problems to get concrete, practical guidance. “We know people are so busy _ that’s one of the reasons they can’t calm their minds to sleep well _ so we wanted to help them without adding more stress to their schedule with sessions to attend,” Donahue said. “This way they can access the program around their own schedule.”

 Donahue created the program after seeing how a lack of sleep affects a person’s mood, energy level and concentration, as well as compromising immune systems, interfering with memory and leading to health problems like weight gain and high blood pressure.

 “Struggling to fall asleep or stay asleep affects at least 30 percent of the population,” Donahue said. “But you can do something without taking a sleeping pill.”
