The Truth About Red Wine

Friday, October 7, 2011

Did you know...

that not getting enough sleep is linked with:
  • Increase in body mass index – a greater likelihood of obesity due to an increased appetite caused by sleep deprivation?
  • Increased risk of diabetes and heart problems?

I've always thought I needed to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. I've been struggling to get those 8 hours of sleep for some time now. I try but I seem to always fall short an hour. So I decided to do some research and I found out it's 7 to 9 hours of sleep that is best for an adult to get each night. What a relief one less thing to stress about. I'm A.O.K. on the sleeping.
