The Insomnia Solution - Michael Krugman
Insomnia. It’s nearly universal affliction that keeps millions of Americans up at night. But now there’s help: THE INSOMNIA SOLUTION by Michael Krugman.
In this revolutionary book, Krugman shows readers that insomnia is not just a nighttime affliction, but a 24-hour-a-day condition resulting from daytime stress that persists into the night, delaying the onset of sleep and making it shallower and less restful.
To relieve stress and ensure sounder sleep, Krugman offers a two-pronged program of gentle, physical techniques, called Mini-Moves, based on traditional and modern self-healing methods including qigong, meditation, and the Feldenkrais Method. Brief, daytime Mini-Moves offset stress and make life more peaceful. When your life is more peaceful, your sleep is more peaceful.
Nighttime Mini-Moves, done while lying quietly in bed, make it easy to fall asleep at bedtime and enable quick recovery from unwanted awakenings during the night.
Readers can personalize the plan, which consists of a combination of 18 Mini-Moves. The profusely illustrated, step-by-step format makes learning fun and effective. THE INSOMNIA SOLUTION will help millions of readers to get all the natural, restful sleep they need, when they need it.

From the Author
If you’ve got insomnia, sleeping pills aren’t the only option. This book offers gentle, easy-to-learn exercises called mini-moves™ to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. These tiny movements of the eyes, lips, tongue, and fingers will relax your body, calm your mind, and lull you to sleep. This is a non-addictive, no-cost alternative to sleeping pills. And it really works.
How does it work? It’s a two-pronged approach. There are daytime mini-moves to help you recover from the stress of life, and night-time mini-moves to help you fall asleep, and stay sleep through the night. They work together to restore your natural sleep cycle.
The daytime mini-moves can be done anywhere, even at your desk or workstation or on a train, bus, or plane. All it takes is three to five minutes. Practice twice a day for three weeks, I can promise that your life will become noticeably more peaceful. When your life is more peaceful, your sleep is more peaceful.
The nighttime mini-moves are done right in your own bed. They effortlessly bring your body and mind to the point where you just naturally drift off to sleep. If you awaken during the night, you can do the same mini-moves again to return to sleep quickly and easily. And the great thing is, the movements are so small that not even your partner will notice you’re doing them. So why not give it a try? You have nothing to lose but those dark circles under your eyes!
