How much sleep do you get? For many, the answer is not enough!
The benefits of a good night’s sleep are well known to make people feel refreshed and alert, and it can also boost your immune system, lower blood pressure, and reduce heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Yet, a third of US adults report getting less than the recommended amount of sleep. This data has remained the same from 2013 until 2020. Sleep deprivation contributes to chronic health conditions, including obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and fatigue.
The recommended amount of sleep changes with age. While each person may need more or less than recommended, the importance of quality sleep- feeling rested– and a consistent schedule, are prime factors in getting a good night’s sleep.
Ok, everyone, World Sleep Day was March 17th, but don’t let that stop you from getting a good sleep tonight. Specific worries may cause sleep loss– talk to your financial professional if it is at all money related– and if the problem turns long-term or affects your day, your doctor may be able to help. Remember, anyone at any age may experience restless sleep. I’ll leave you with some tips below on getting a restful sleep with a newsletter from the National Institutes of Health.
