This just in: We are one sleepy nation! Nearly one quarter of adults are unhappy with their sleep patterns, and up to 10 percent are suffering full-blown insomnia, says research in The Lancet. How does that affect your life? The consequences are countless. Not only can it hurt your relationships and work performance—it also puts you at greater risk for depression, hypertensions and diabetes.
And if you haven’t heard: sleep deprivation makes you snack more and pack on the pounds. Simply, your body needs quality sleep to look and feel good. Make it a priority, sleeping beauty.
