Are you getting enough sleep?

The average American admits that they often sacrifice sleep in order to meet the other demands in their busy lives. The result is sleep deprivation, often ignored by most, or commonly masked with unhealthy sleep aids such as caffeine, nicotine or sugars. However, this sleep type of cycle can be vicious, and when ignored, the effect on one’s overall health and quality of life can be devastating.

So how do you know if you are not getting enough sleep?

To determine this, ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I tired when I wake up in the morning?
  • Am I tired during the day?
  • Do I feel tired all of the time?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may need a sleep study.
