Sleep is a basic human need. It heals your body, boosts your immune system and recharges your brain.
That’s why chronic lack of sleep, or poor-quality sleep, can take a toll on your health, increasing your risk for obesity, heart problems, diabetes or depression. Feeling tired or less alert can also impact decision making and reaction time.
If you’re desperate for a good night’s sleep, turn to the sleep medicine specialists at PeaceHealth. They manage sleep problems in children and adults, and can help you figure out why you can’t sleep and find ways to improve the quality of your sleep — and your life.
