Importance of Sleep￼
We all know sleep is essential and vital for our health! When we don’t get good sleep it impacts our mental, emotional, and physical functioning.
According to the American Sleep Apnea Foundation these are some current stats about sleep health in America:
- 50-70 million Americans suffer from sleep related problems
- Excessive daytime sleepiness is an increasing cause of on-the-job accidents and car accidents
- There are over 80 different sleep disorders. Some of which are sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, nightmare disorder, and insomnia.
There are ways we can improve our sleep by working to have healthy sleep hygiene, limiting caffeine, and seeking treatment for underlying problems. One thing that helps we relax and sleep better is using grounding techniques.
