We all dream of comfortably and peacefully drifting off to sleep, staying asleep all night long, and then waking up feeling well rested and rejuvenated – but for many of us, this is not our reality.  We either have trouble with one of these aspects of sleep, or all of them, and statistics from the CDC confirm that a third of US adults do not get enough sleep.

Quality sleep is undoubtedly a crucial factor in one’s overall health and is directly tied to physical health, brain health (i.e. decision-making skills, problem-solving abilities), emotional well-being, and day-to-day performance. Just like water and air, you can’t live without it, and lack of sleep is often linked to increased ill-health. There is simply no question that adequate rest is essential to one’s well-being – as this is the time the body rests and, more importantly, the brain repairs and reorganizes itself – and let’s face it, makes you feel human.

Common Sleep Woes

Even though we may know the benefits and necessity of a good night’s sleep – and we desperately try to log those 7-8 hours – falling asleep and staying asleep can evade the best of us. Often times, we feel physically ready to collapse into bed at the end of a busy day, but being mentally ready for a rejuvenating night’s sleep may be another story.
