On average, we spend one-third of our lives sleeping. Until the invention of electricity a mere few hundred years ago, we followed the day and night cycle of the earth and slept when it became dark and arose with the sun. Today’s fast paced society continues to decrease the amount of time allocated to sleep. In 1960 a survey done by the American Cancer Society of one million people reported the median amount of sleep to be 8 hours. In 2008, this decreased to 6.7 hrs. Optimal sleep is of paramount importance to our health and directly impacts our metabolism, cognitive function and how we age.
We will teach you how to improve your sleep with lifestyle changes, vitamins, and/or natural supplements if needed.
