FACTS: Have you ever counted imaginary sheep to help your mind relax and fall asleep at night? For people with insomnia, it’s not that simple. Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder in the world. Approximately 30% of adults have symptoms of insomnia and over 10% may have chronic insomnia, making it a struggle to get through their waking days. The lack of sleep is a growing public health crisis.
Insomnia is characterized by difficulty falling and staying asleep, often leading to sleep deprivation and fatigue. It occurs if you cannot produce sufficient sleep quantity and quality, even when giving yourself enough time to try to sleep. Short-term insomnia that lasts no more than a few weeks is known as acute or adjustment insomnia. Chronic insomnia is when the disorder occurs at least three nights each week for more than three months. Insomnia is further defined as primary or secondary. Primary insomnia takes place regardless of any other health condition or mental illness. Triggers include environmental, medical, physical and psychological factors. Stressful events, such as a coronavirus pandemic, often contribute. Secondary insomnia is caused by an illness that inhibits the ability to sleep.
Many of us fail to obtain the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Insomnia and sleep loss of any type are hazardous to your health, contributing to weight gain, heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, and inflicting devastating effects on the brain and the body. Thankfully, there are methods for improving sleep and insomnia need not be permanent.
If you suffer from insomnia, cognitive behavioral therapy or medication are more beneficial treatments than counting sheep. Sleeping pills, which sedate your higher brain, are a blunt instrument and not the best first-line treatment. Through cognitive restructuring, relaxation methods, and sleep training techniques, insomniacs can reduce their symptoms and learn to fall and stay asleep at night. Herbal remedies, antihistamines and melatonin supplements can also help. Speak with your healthcare professional and visit the National Sleep Foundation website for excellent information on the world of sleep science and health.

The perfect addition to my collections. Thank you knick knack
I was delighted when I found the World's Smallest GI Joes. My son has a complete set of figures and mobiles. I was wondering how I could add to his collection. I saw these at Knick Knack and was thrilled. I was even more thrilled when I saw the prices. I immediately ordered one of each. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I look forward to shopping here again.
Very cute little Care Bears! They make me so happy. This is a fantastic price for all four, and they shipped pretty quickly! If you put the pastel and multicolored bears together, they'd look like a mini version of my childhood teddy bear.
Super well made. Fast shipping. Safeky packaged. Very happy. Will return to buy more. :)
The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
A great seller to work with, price was perfect and fast to shop out. My item was exactly as advertised.
Just as described. They’re adorable
