Do you sleep well?
How much or how little you sleep can affect everything else you do. It can affect your mood, your productivity, and your overall health. Some form of sleep issue affects about 70 million people, according to the CDC. They go on to say, “Lack of sleep is associated with injuries, chronic diseases, mental illnesses, poor quality of life and well-being, increased health care costs, and lost work productivity. Sleep problems are major contributors to some chronic conditions, including obesity and depression but are rarely addressed.”
