Sleep is a primary biological need, but 2 out of 3 people are not getting enough sleep. Is that you?
Sleep affects almost every type of tissue and system in the body – from the brain, heart, and lungs to metabolism, immune function, mood, and disease resistance. Research shows that a chronic lack of sleep, or getting poor quality sleep, increases the risk of disorders including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, and obesity.
On today's show:
- A quick quiz to determine if you're getting enough sleep
- Why your brain (not just your body) desperately needs sleep to properly function
- 5 tips to a longer and more restful sleep from a sleep expert
