You'll learn valuable skills that you can use immediately so you can
- feel calm instead of anxious,
- get better sleep instead of watching the minutes tick by,
- avoid tempting bad habits instead of popping a cork at 2 p.m., and
- preserve your relationships instead of grabbing a guest slot on Jerry Springer.

Stress can sometimes appear as an interruption of normal sleep patterns. Without adequate sleep, our thinking becomes foggy, and it’s harder to feel balanced physically or emotionally. Sleep deprivation can also lead to increased inflammation levels and pain. And if you currently suffer from chronic pain, getting a good night’s rest is probably already challenging; yet, it's even more important for you. You will learn a guided imagery practice that will teach you how to feel less stressed, more comfortable, and get the sleep you need.

But you CAN unleash your creativity and imagination so you can survive and thrive.
