We all know the importance of sleep but more and more these days, people are getting less and less and feeling the effects.
Whether you're just putting in long hours at the office; running your own business outside of your full-time job; working at two jobs or just have a hectic lifestyle - we can all be impacted by not getting enough sleep. Working long hours increases risk of heart attack.
We're programmed to respond to a day/night cycle and our internal body clock and our hormone cycles are disrupted when we don't get enough sleep. As well as affecting our productivity during the day, it also impacts our health and has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
Taking your smartphone or iPad to bed and working late on your computer are bad habits that impact the quality and length of your sleep. Leave technology out of the bedroom. Is your smartphone depriving you of sleep.
Make sure that working late and stressing over your workload aren't keeping you up at night. Get in touch if they are and find out how to get a better night's sleep.
