Sleep Deprivation is Unhealthy and Can Be Life Threatening Over Time
A good night’s sleep is one of the best things you can do to improve your health, energy and brain function. Sleep is the time that our mind and body needs to heal and rejuvenate, and without enough sleep, our health suffers. That means we must find ways to get proper rest. Unfortunately, many people either don’t get enough sleep or can’t sleep. Today, one-third of all Americans get less than 6 hours a night. Per the National Sleep Foundation the average adult needs 8.25 hours of sleep per night. Reducing sleep by 1.5 hours a night reduces alertness by about one-third.
