Sleep Better = Feel Better

 

Reported incidences of sleep disorders have increased over the last 10 years. In fact, studies have shown that only 35% of adults in the United States consistently get the recommended 7- 8 hours of sleep per night. Sleep problems consist of difficulty getting to and/or staying asleep and can cause impairment during the day. The quantity and quality of sleep have a powerful impact on memory, health conditions and a person’s general well-being. Insufficient sleep has been linked to:

  • Colds/Flu

  • Obesity

  • Diabetes

  • Heart Disease

  • Decreased Brain Function

 

Here are a few things you should (and shouldn’t) do to help improve how long and how well you sleep:

  • Jot down details of your days and nights to try to pinpoint some sources of your sleeplessness. There may be patterns that you’re unaware of.

  • Keep your sleeping area cool, dark and quiet. Noise, light and warm temperatures can make you tense and affect your ability to relax.

  • Exercise regularly. While working out increases energy during the day, it can also reduce the time it takes to fall asleep.

  • Turn off the TV and put down the phone an hour before bed. Electronic devices stimulate the brain and can, therefore, prevent you from falling and staying asleep.
