why night & day matter
Have you ever noticed that when your sleep falls apart, your days tend to too? And your plans? And your productivity? And you? Well, that’s because sleep is critical for ensuring good daytime functioning.
Translation: sleep plays a huge part in having a good day.
When we sleep well, we increase the odds of living healthier, happier and more productive lives. Win.
It’s time to think about sleep as the beginning of your tomorrow rather than the end of your today.
so what does that mean for the 25 million US adults who are struggling with the impact of insomnia?
People living with insomnia are awake when everyone else is asleep and exhausted when the rest of the world is energetic and active. This reversal of night & day can cause unwanted impacts: psychological and emotional distress and increased physical health risks such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes. You get the idea.
Meanwhile, people who get good sleep are more likely to wake up refreshed, focused and ready for whatever the day brings. Wouldn’t that be nice.
So while insomnia may seem like a problem of the night, that’s only half the story because its effects are also felt during the day.
Insomnia is both a night & day problem
