Are You Getting Enough Sleep?

“I don’t have time to sleep” and “I’ll sleep when I’m dead,” are some of the statements that I’ve heard recently. This is not to say that sleep isn’t considered to be important. For some, it comes down to their priorities.  Getting tasks done is often highly prioritized while sleep is sent to the backburner.

Sleep is vital for our physical health. It is involved in the healing and repair of our heart and blood vessels. Sleep deficiency, over time, can be linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.
