At times we overlook the importance of winding down before bedtime to relax and be ready for sleep. We may watch TV or movies, play virtual games, be on the computer or go out loud, bright events. As the Sun fades, our body clock automatically takes over and signals to our system that it is time to sleep. When this body rhythm is disturbed, out of balance, or over-stimulated, sleep becomes difficult. The body needs to relax and rejuvenate. Many cultures have developed herbal remedies precisely to relax and sleep.
