Sleep Tight! 10 Ways to Wake up Refreshed
Not getting enough sleep is frustrating and keeps us from being at the top of our game. We snap at our kids, are irritable on the job, and do not enjoy life to the fullest. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that 25% of Americans do not get enough sleep and another 10% have chronic insomnia.
Lack of sleep contributes to developing chronic conditions such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease. Depression can cause insomnia or be the by-product of sleep deprivation. If you are feeling the blues, consider seeing your doctor to determine if it is clinical depression that may benefit from medication, or the stressors of life interfering with sleep.
