Sleep: The New Health Frontier

Reasons why we sacrifice sleep

In an ever-increasing digital world, there are more things than ever competing for your daytime attention and causing nighttime sleeplessness. Using technology before bed stimulates your brain and interferes with sleep. Up to 95 percent of all Americans use some type of electronic before falling asleep.

Watching television, working on a computer or talking on a cell phone within the hours before going to bed causes sleep disturbances.

Many doctors, lawyers, and executives stay up late getting work done, but the next day they are too tired to perform up to their potential.

Students know what it is like to stay up late studying and writing essays. They don’t realize they are impairing their learning and memory abilities.
