Almost everyone knows about the importance of healthy eating and exercise, but sleep is just as important. And, unfortunately, many Americans simply aren’t getting enough each night. A report showed that 70% of Americans stated that they had poor sleep at least once per month, with 11% of people having sleep issues every single night. And, with 50-70 million Americans dealing with some sort of sleep-related issues, we have to take it more seriously.
Not getting enough Z's each night has been linked to:
- High blood pressure
- Heart attack
- Low sex drive
On average, adults between the ages of 18-64 need 7-9 hours of sleep per night, and older adults 65 years plus need 7-8 hours.
