Are you getting enough sleep? - The Apartments at CityCenter
March 2 – 8 defines National Sleep Awareness Week, culminating on the start of Daylight Savings Time, when almost all Americans will lose an hour of sleep. But, perhaps due to stress, diet, illness or environment, getting enough sleep every night may be a recurring problem for some.
How much is enough sleep? We will spend up to a third of our lives asleep. The recommended range for adults is between 7 and 9 hours per night, according to the National Sleep Foundation. Many can do fine with as few as 6 and as many as 10 hours per night. The key is to pay attention to how you feel upon waking up.
- How is your energy level? Are you jumping or dragging yourself out of bed?
- Do you depend on caffeine to get you through the day?
- Are you falling asleep on the metro – or worse, behind the wheel?
If you are having trouble with getting enough sleep, the impact on your quality of life can be significant. For more information on improving your sleep, visit the National Sleep Foundation website: https://sleep.org/
