Millions of people have trouble falling, staying or getting a quality good night’s sleep. Insomnia does not only describe people that cannot sleep at all, but it also describes those people not getting the quality of sleep needed to function at a productive and healthy level during the day. Quality of sleep is measured by different levels of sleep experienced by a person. An inability to get enough deep sleep or enter deep sleep at all, will have the same effects on a person with an inability to sleep at all.
Sleep is your body’s time to regenerate and recharge. Insomnia in any form, can cause fatigue, exhaustion, loss of mental sharpness or ability to focus, depression, irritability and a debilitating effect on personal and professional relationships. People suffering from insomnia can feel tired and weighed down even after having gotten sleep during the night prior due to the chronic fatigued state their body has adapted to functioning at.

Helpful Tips for Improving Quality of Sleep:
- Disconnect – Turn off all electronics in your place of sleep an hour or so prior to sleep and leave them off until you are ready to face your day the following morning. In this day and age, we are constantly connected to our professional and personal contacts. These advances can cause our bodies to function in a constant state of anxiousness that lessons our ability to get quality sleep during the night.
- Monitor Beverage Intake – It is important to keep a watchful eye on what beverages you consume throughout the day and especially in the early evening. Consuming a lot of caffeinated or alcoholic beverages even up to 4 hours before bed can affect your ability to enter the level and duration of deep sleep needed for a positive health outcome.
