Article on "How to improve your chances of a good night’s sleep. By The Holistic Shop's Margaret McGoverne. To quote,
Having suffered the worst insomnia to date in recent months I’ve searched out the advice of both conventional doctors and some more alternative views. I’ve found that the following advice certainly helped me – I wouldn’t say I’m cured but when the insomnia recurs, these methods seem to do the trick for me.

However it’s important to remember that sleep disturbances may be the symptom of a stress related, or other ailment - if in doubt, it’s always best to consult your GP. Having said that, the suggestions listed here are all tried and tested, and may help you to improve your nighttime sleep allowance considerably.
The Center for Sleep and Dream Studies, Ottowa, Canada -- Probably a trustworthy site, professionally managed, I suspect.
The Psychology of Dreams: Myths-Dreams-Symbols -- Features one of my favorite resources, a video of Joseph Campbell/Bill Moyers conversations.
Dreams A to Z -- Sister site to Myths-Dreams Symbols. This is an interesting link-rich website worth exploring.
The Global Oneness Commitment -- "The meeting place for cultural creatives. Co-creating a happy world." Everything under the sun in the New Age Style, kind of a fun site.
