Mythbuster Monday - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Mythbuster Monday

We are working together with the National Sleep Foundation:

Myth: Men and women are affected the same way by insomnia.

False.

Here are the facts from the N.S.F.

*Insomnia is twice as common in women.

*Women are also more likely to talk to a doctor about the problem.

*Factors that affect women include menstrual cycle, stress level, work hours and other life responsibilities.

A couple of things that might help:

Establish a consistent relaxing "wind-down" bedtime routine

Talking to your doctor about whether you need an over the counter medicine or prescription to help you get rest
