The article offers information about the results of the 2006 Better Sleep Month survey conducted by the Better Sleep Council, an educational arm of the International Sleep Products Assn. The survey found out most Americans are willing to try almost anything in order to cope up with sleep deprivation and emotional stress. Survey results show that half of the Americans overlook some of the most obvious components of quality sleep because they are unlikely to take even basic steps.
