Rest Easy       Archived


Getting enough rest each night is just as important as diet and exercise for good health. However, more than one third of adults in the US report getting less than the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each day. Insufficient rest can be associated with health problems, such as increased anxiety, symptoms of depression, and weight gain. Lack of sleep can also hinder your work performance and cause you to doze off while driving. In this podcast, Dr. Daniel Chapman discusses the importance of getting enough sleep.
