Feeling a bit more irritable than usual? Or befuddled by constant brain fog and fatigue? For many people, the solution to grumpy moods and a general feeling of being wiped out is a good night’s sleep. Unfortunately, long stretches of REM sleep – the type that is necessary for optimum health – is often elusive for many people. During this deep phase of sleep, your body is active building muscle tissues, replacing dead cells, healing injuries and consolidating your memories. If you think you can get by on just five or six hours of sleep each night, think again. Research has proven that adults need a minimum of 7.5 to 9 hours (children and adolescents need even more) of uninterrupted slumber every night to function at peak performance.
However, life’s many distractions frequently interfere with quality sleep. Relationship troubles, pressures at work, sick children and other unexpected issues can make it nearly impossible to enjoy a solid night’s sleep. For the majority of folks who suffer from sleep difficulties, a few simple changes in your daily routine can make a tremendous difference in how well you sleep.
In order to stay mentally focused, productive and healthy, follow these simple tips to sleep better and longer at night.
