WHERE YOUR SLEEP MATTERS
Sleep is not just “time out” from daily life. It is an active state required to renew our mental and physical health each day. It is estimated that more than 100 million Americans of all ages, however, regularly fail to get a good night’s sleep.
There are at least 84 disorders of sleeping and waking that can lead to a lowered quality of life and reduced personal health. These disorders can lead to problems falling asleep and staying asleep, difficulties staying awake or staying within a regular sleep/wake cycle, sleepwalking, bedwetting, nightmares, and other problems that interfere with sleep.
Some sleep disorders can be life threatening. They also endanger public safety by contributing to traffic and industrial accidents.
