May is Better Sleep Month

Good sleep habits have a positive effect on work, relationships and resilience. Sleep deprivation can influence your overall health in many ways such as: chronic diseases, mental illnesses, poor quality of life and lost work productivity (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). If you’re getting less than eight hours of sleep each night, you may be sleep deprived. Some common signs of sleep deprivation are:

  • Difficulty waking up without an alarm clock
  • Beginning to feel sluggish in the afternoon
  • Trouble staying awake during lectures or meetings
  • Often feeling the need to nap during the day
  • Difficulty concentrating and completing tasks
  • Trouble relaxing in the evening without falling asleep

Developing good sleep habits takes practice. The following have some good tips:
