Improve Your Sleep For Your Overall Health

I found two interesting articles on the importance of sleep with regards to our health.

First, is the beneficial effects that sleep has on coronary artery disease. Just one extra hour of sleep a night may help control coronary artery calcification.

Second, a sleep disorder, REM Sleep Behavior Disorder, has a link to neurological disorders later in life such as Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease.

Tips for how to get a better night's sleep
include improving daytime habits, creating a better sleep environment, preparing to sleep, and how to get back to sleep once you've woken in the night. Now that's a new year's resolution I can get on board with!
