Spotlight On … A Good Night's Sleep

According to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, 30% of American workers sleep less than six hours a night.

Although individual sleep needs differ, the National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults get seven to nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance and well-being.

People who are regularly sleep deprived are more likely to be less productive, have trouble focusing, be cranky, cause accidents and have chronic health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure. If you have trouble sleeping on a regular basis, consult your doctor.

If you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t fall back to sleep after 15 minutes, experts agree you should go to another room and engage in a relaxing activity until you feel sleepy.
