6 Things You Can Do To Get A Better Night Sleep Tonight by: Jesse Cannone, CFT, CPRS Let's face it-we live in a "go-go" world! Our lifestyle is harried, our food is fast and statistics now show it's taking a toll on one of the most important parts of our life--our sleep. The 2002 National Sleep Foundation (NSF) Sleep in America poll found that 74 percent of American adults are experiencing a sleeping problem a few nights a week or more, 39% get less than seven hours of sleep each weeknight, and more than one in three (37%) are so sleepy during the day that it interferes with daily activities. Our fast paced way of life is getting the best of us. What about you? Answer True or False? 1. Five hours of sleep at night is good enough. 2. It's ok to skimp on sleep during the work week as long as you make up the time over the weekends. 3. The effects of sleep deprivation are short-term (e.g., darkness under the eyes and dull and/or splotchy skin after a bad night's sleep) and has no effect on long-term health. 4. Drinking caffeine early in the evening does not affect sleep. 5. Keeping a TV or computer in the bedroom has no effect on sleep. 6. The amount of sleep I get has nothing to do with my weight. If you answered "true" to two or more questions you may need to make a few changes in order to achieve the highly coveted "goodnight's" sleep and keep yourself in optimal health.
