iChill Frequently Asked Questions
Why wouldn’t I just take sleeping pills?
Pills work, but can also be very dangerous and habit forming. iChill is meant to be a safe, natural alternative to those sleep medications.
You got any other tips for chilling out and sleeping better?
Sure. If you just can’t wait that long, give this a try: create a peaceful environment for yourself. Try to cut off the TV for an hour or so before trying to sleep. Use that hour to “wind down” try reading a book or listening to some light music…think Jack Johnson not Metallica’s greatest hits.
How much sleep should I be getting a night?
According to most experts, there is no magic number on the hours of sleep needed per night. It all depends on factors such as your age, gender, and physical health condition, among other things. A good target is between 7-9 hours of sleep a night and regulating your sleep cycle by going to bed and waking up around the same time each day.
Is “chilling out” and resting just as good as sleep?

We know that to perform your best during the day you need both and ultimately you’ll be a healthier and happier person. iChill can help, believe us…you don’t even know what you’re missing.

I’ve gained some weight lately due to stress. Can iChill help?
Without trying to get too technical on you, long-term stress can cause the body to release a wide range of hormonal responses.

While iChill can’t solve your stressful situations, it’s here to relax you and possibly take your mind away from those unhealthy patterns of “stress eating.”
