Sleep is Vital to Good Health

A night of restful, regenerating sleep is most important for reducing daily stress and ensuring our body’s optimal health.  Sleep deprivation can reduce your reaction time, possibly resulting in an increased incidence of motor vehicle accidents.  It can also negatively affect your memory, create problems focusing, learning and decrease your immune system.  Lack of proper sleep means awakening with the body already in stress for the coming day which may cause low energy, irritability or a depressed mood.
