7 Tips For A Good Night's Sleep

7 Tips For A Good Night's Sleep

Dr. Gail Saltz is a psychiatrist with New York Presbyterian Hospital.  In this recent post she writes about the stress of modern and the toll it might take on our sleeping habits.  But as she says...
"Sleep is tremendously important, affecting both physical and mental health. Lack of deep, restorative sleep can lead to mood alterations, depression, hunger and fatigue. A lack of concentration means work performance suffers. Irritability means relationships suffer. It’s no wonder that sleep deprivation is used as a means of torture."
She doesn’t advocate taking sleeping pills for sleep problems that are likely temporary and related to the life you are living. Instead she provides seven tips for getting a good night's sleep and you can find them at this link
