  • Time Spent With Devices Exceeds Time Spent On Sleep

    There’s word rom the latest Ofcom report, and the news is not good. According to the results of a survey done in the United Kingdom, the average adult there spends eight hours and forty-one minutes paying attention to their electronic devices, whether that means indulging in social media, reading work-related communications, or perusing digital media. Compare this measure to the amount of time that is spent on sleep and you see the dilemma — sleep is accounting for just eight hours and 21 minutes per day, and experts say that the figure spent on sleep is probably an overstatement.

  • Say Hello to Sunshine, Sleep’s Best Friend

    It may seem counterintuitive to say that if you want to get more shut-eye, you need to get yourself out into the bright light of day, but it’s a fact.

    We live in a hustle and bustle world where there is too much to do and not enough time in which to do it. The list of health advantages and risks to getting less than seven hours of sleep gets longer with each new study that sleep scientists conduct, but a recent study into the impact of sleep quantity and cardiovascular disease is startling, and something that the general public needs to be made aware of.

  • The Scoop on Snoring

    Snoring is generally one of those bodily functions that evoke smirks and snarky comments, much like breaking wind or belching. But unlike the sounds that come from our digestive system, snoring can be an indication of serious medical issues, and need to be thought of as much more than something that keeps our bed partners from getting a good night’s sleep. Though some snoring is relatively innocent and simply disruptive, in many instances snoring is a signal that the person who is snoring is suffering from a serious health condition that can lead to deadly results. Though this is certainly not the case for every person who snores, people who do snore should take their condition seriously and consult their physician to make sure that they are not ignoring the presence of a serious concern.
