If you have ever felt sluggish and groggy after a poor night’s sleep, you understand how a lack of sleep can impact your ability to function. A healthy amount of sleep is vital for the brain’s ability to adapt to input. If we don’t get enough sleep, our ability to process information is impaired.
Researchers now recognize that adequate sleep is as essential for good health, as diet and exercise. Experts recommend at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night for most people and those who regularly get fewer than 6 hours of sleep may be at a higher risk for degenerative conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cognitive decline.
