The Mind-Body Connection:  We tend to separate ourselves and what we’re experiencing in our health as either mental or physical.  When our back hurts, we think we have a physical problem.  When we worry and can’t stop thinking, we think we have a mental problem.  Actually, these events are mind-body experiences.

Breathing and relaxation techniques are true mind-body practices.  They unite both parts and for some insomniacs, they offer a major breakthrough in insomnia self-help.
