How to Sleep Better

An important part of staying healthy is getting enough sleep. Here’s how to make that happen.

Sleep is as important to keeping you healthy as exercising regularly, eating a well-rounded diet and maintaining a healthy weight. But 50% of adults have occasional insomnia and more than 20% have chronic sleep troubles. You may be able to function on an occasional night of poor sleep, but not sleeping enough on a regular basis can take a toll on your health. A chronic lack of sleep may increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other health issues. It may also lower productivity, make you more prone to accidents and put you in a bad mood.
