As you fight to get going every morning, you might think, ‘So what if I don’t get enough sleep? That’s basically the whole experience of adulthood, right?’ Although lack of sleep and its effects are shockingly common in the United States, you still have plenty of reason to attend to it. Poor sleep is tied to so many short-term problems and chronic health issues.
When it comes to people’s sleep goals, many of us tend to focus on how many hours of sleep they get. We hear that comment from our patients all the time here at Premier Sleep Associates. While the number of hours you are in bed to sleep is a great benchmark to start with, you also need to focus on the quality of sleep and restfulness you have to get the most out of your sleep.
