When sleep won’t come

Sleep is essential to life  – at least that is what the experts say. When sleep won’t come it may mean an early death. Many of us can relate to tossing and turning and not getting the required 7 to 8 hours sleep a night. I know many who boast that they can survive on 4 hours sleep a night. I definitely cannot survive on little sleep and I feel sluggish and tired all day if I don’t get a good night’s sleep.

Studies have shown that not enough sleep can result in health risks that include cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and can severely impair the proper functioning of your immune system. More recently a study showed that those who stay up late and get up early are at a higher risk for premature death. Do you get enough sleep and what is enough?
