Improve Your Sleep - Starting Tonight!
Why is Sleep So Important?
During sleep, a variety of processes occur to restore our minds and bodies to their normal, healthy baseline. When we sleep poorly, our bodies miss out on the chance to recharge, both physically and mentally.
Personal sleep needs do vary depending on the individual, and sleep needs vary further with age, stress levels, and general health. It is fair to say that insomnia is a nationwide problem.
According to the CDC, nearly 1/3 of US adults report that they usually get less than the general recommended 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Regular sleep deprivation has been linked to the chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and depression. Frequent sleeplessness can also pose a public health concern, as it may affect our capacity to drive safely, and care for others at work.
