Do you get enough sleep?

So many of us just don't sleep enough and even more of us are not getting quality sleep. According to the National Center for Sleep Disorders Research at the National Institutes of Health, about 30-40% of adults say they have some symptoms of insomnia within a given year. Sleep deprivation can cause a gamut of health problems. People who suffer from lack of sleep can experience everything from lethargy to headaches, memory lapses to obesity, increased blood pressure to increased risk for diabetes, ADHD symptoms to depression and so many other problems. Quality sleep is vital to our nervous system and lack of it makes for an all around less productive life.

More than half of all American adults experience sleep problems. New parents lose about 350 hours of nighttime sleep during the first year of baby's life. One of the most common sleep problems that people can experience at some point in their life and some experience chronically is insomnia. There are many reasons someone may experience insomnia and many possible solutions that people turn to for relief.

One such solution that insomniacs and many others seeking quality sleep will often turn to is a sound machine or white noise machine. Personally, I've tried many different sleep sound systems throughout my life and have lukewarm feelings for most of them. The sound quality usually leaves something to be desired while generally being awakened by the sound shutting off or having to use a separate alarm clock.

Recently, I was blessed with the opportunity to experience a new sleep sound system. The Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System S-650-01 has changed the quality of sleep in my household.

The Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System S-650-01 from Sound Oasis features clinically proven sounds developed by Dr. Lee Bartel, an internationally acclaimed music and health expert. In addition to these amazing sound therapy sounds, the Sound Oasis system also provides six authentic digital recordings of nature sounds that were recorded in the wild by the world's foremost nature recorder. What this means is that, unlike digitally made or enhanced sounds that some other systems may use, the nature sounds of the Sound Oasis system are the most realistic available.

The Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System also uses sound card technology to allow you the ability to change your sound themes by inserting a new memory card. The flexibility in the sounds is fantastic and truly allows the user to find the absolute best sound for their particular sleep problem and easily find the optimum sound for their own quality sleep.

Another beneficial function you'll find is the unique and patented Sleep Enhancement technology that slows down sound playback to lull you to sleep. While other sound systems may have the multi-position timer that the Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System uses, this timer boasts an amazing function. The unique "gradual off" volume reduction allows for a more peaceful decrease in the sound instead of just stopping. The sound quality is great. The omnidirectional reflective speaker allows the sound to come from the back of the unit and really feels like it's filling your room with the peaceful sounds.

It's well known how important a good night's sleep is to our bodies and our minds. Far too many people are constantly chasing that good sleep. Our lives are busier than ever and full of more stress with each passing day. When you lay your head down at night, a system like the Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System can absolutely change how you fall asleep and what kind of sleep you have once you are there. As someone who suffers from tinnitus, I can attest to the awesome power of this particular sound system. To be able to fall asleep faster and with greater ease is an amazing thing. It leads to less stressful days and an overall feeling of well-being.

Whether you are suffering from insomnia, dealing with a crying baby, feeling the effects of tinnitus or some other sleep disorder, I highly recommend the Sound Oasis Sound Therapy System over any other sleep sound system on the market. The quality of the sound is better than any I've heard and the prices are pleasantly affordable. I'm seriously contemplating having one of these in every room of the house. The whole family can benefit from the enhanced sleep quality and the gentle, soothing sounds are ideal for relaxation at any time.
