Study after study shows that a lack of sleep can cause serious health problems, from weight gain to decreased immunity to memory loss. As Americans sleep less and less these days, it's important to look at why.
Too much caffeine 24/7 lifestyle
People work around the clock these days, with the help of smart phones, and tablet/notebook computers, which make it just as easy to work from home as in the office. People can be active anywhere at any time, whether at work or play.
Bluelight from Electronics
The soft light emitted from our electronics tricks our mind into believing it is daytime making getting to sleep all the more difficult. I recommend not having a TV in the bedroom for promoting sleep and temptation to be physically inactive.
Anxiety about the economy
The mortgage crisis, big business failures, and rising unemployment have made it more difficult for the population to get 8 hours of sleep a night. Stress and financial anxieties are a leading contributor to sleeplessness, according to a study of 7,000 respondents by the American Psychological Association.
Coffee has always been popular, but more people are consuming it than ever before. Coffee used to be an “adult” drink, but now teens and even pre-teens consume coffee regularly, in high doses. This has led to more sleeplessness, which can be particularly harmful to young people.
The need for adequate sleep is ongoing, but with our lifestyles getting increasingly more scheduled (and productive), the battle for eight hours of sleep a night will only get tougher. Fortunately, Relax The Back is trained to help you get the most out of your sleep time.
