Sleeplessness Research

Many people have a hard time falling asleep at night or staying asleep throughout the night. This leads to grogginess, decreased productivity, and irritability throughout the day. The body depends on a series of internal rhythms to fall into a natural sleep cycle. Acute life stresses, anxiety, poor sleep habits, chronic diseases, and medications can affect this sleep cycle and prevent us from getting quality sleep.
