Getting a good night’s rest is the goal for all of us when we finally decide to put our heads on the pillow. Whether we can achieve it, however, often isn’t up to us. Be it the stresses on our mind or other reasons, having issues with our sleep has become all too common. In fact, it is reported that 1 in 3 Americans are not getting enough sleep.
Adults need seven or more hours of sleep each night for the sake of their health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, not every adult gets the sleep they need to start the day feeling well-rested and refreshed. More people struggle with a sleep disorder than you might realize. Sleep disorders affect millions of Americans every year.
As many as twenty-two million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. Because this condition is something that occurs at night while the afflicted are sleeping, many people don’t even know that they have it. However, just because someone doesn’t know that they have a condition doesn’t mean that it is harmless.
