Sleep + Health
Sleep can impact your overall health and wellness.
Sleep plays an important role in overall health and wellness. Interrupted or insufficient sleep can lead to a variety of health concerns. Medical conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, develop over long periods of time and result from a number of factors, such as genetics, poor nutrition, and lack of exercise. Insufficient sleep has also been linked to these and other health problems, and is considered an important risk factor. Although scientists have just begun to identify the connections between insufficient sleep and disease, most experts have concluded that getting enough high-quality sleep may be as important to health and well-being as nutrition and exercise.

A global sleep epidemic
There is a number of factors which impact healthy sleep. According to research published by Harvard Medical School, sleep apnea is the leading cause of interrupted or unhealthy sleep. An estimated one billion people worldwide suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. This is a global epidemic. Other factors include diet and nutrition, lack of exercise, chronic pain, restless leg syndrome, depression, stress and poor sleep habits.
