When we don’t get enough quality sleep, we can feel mentally sluggish, moody and even exhausted. This can impact not only ourselves, but the people around us.
Sleep issues can cause many problems, including:
- chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes;
- a weakened immune system;
- mental health problems; and
- workplace and motor vehicle accidents.
Unfortunately, as trends go, we seem to be more sleep-deprived and out of sync with our internal clocks than ever before.
