Every decade our government lists our health goals for the next 10 years called the Healthy People report. This year better sleep was added to the list. 25% of US Adults say that they have insufficient sleep or rest at least 5 days out of a month. A major cause is sleep apnea, but others simply do not sleep well. Poor sleep contributes to car and motorcycle crashes. Only 31% of high school students get the recommended 8 hours of sleep a night. Careful attention to good sleep habits can bring great dividends to your health.
