When you sleep a lot of things are happening that you may not realize. Your brain begins cataloguing your previous day’s experiences, trains your memory, and triggers the release of hormones that regulate energy, mood, and mental acuteness. Just like your regular 8 hours work day, your brain needs 7 to 8 hours of sleep to complete its work. It’s a balancing act, when your sleep is effected so is your work and everyday life. Concentration, creativity, mood regulation, and productivity all take a hit. Adults between the ages of 18-60 years old need at least 7 hours of sleep each night to promote optimal health.
A recent study from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests sleep disorders and lack of sleep is effecting 1 out 3 Americans on a regular basis. In recent years, sleep has increasingly been recognized as health concern for public safety. Insufficient sleep can increase the risk for chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, depression, obesity, and mortality.
