Poor Sleep Affects Mental Well-Being
Good health involves many factors, but perhaps one of the least talked about is sleep. A new study, coming out of the University of Leeds in the U.K., discovered that inadequate nighttime sleep can result in poor memory and increases the likelihood of depression, anxiety, and stress. In particular, getting less than five hours made it especially difficult to function during the day, and it is estimated that as many as one-quarter of adults get that little each night. These results are likely obvious to most people, but yet many people struggle to get the sleep they need. Be sure to check out a previous article we posted, providing some nutritional tips for better sleep.
