We have become a nation of sleep-deprived zombies!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), insufficient sleep has become a national epidemic with roughly 35% of the population receiving an average of less than seven hours of rest per night.

Reports link insufficient sleep with several chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and depression. Studies have indicated that even healthy people who get less than six hours of sleep per night run a much higher risk of having a stroke.

And then there are the accidents. On our roads, our jobs and in our homes. Sleepy drivers alone cause more than 40,000 injuries a year.

Taking a little white pill is the solution for many, but there are natural alternatives that can cure your insomnia.

Inside are 21 ways to have you sleeping like a baby tonight!

If you can’t perform at your best, it’s that much harder to earn raises or promotions. One in three Americans gets fewer than the recommended minimum of seven hours a night, a Rober

We Sleep Less As We Age Because Our Brains Don’t Think We're Tired

Pixabay It’s a known fact that as we age, we sleep less. But the reasoning behind this phenomenon is poorly understood. Do older adults sleep less because they need less sleep, or because they simply can’t get the sleep they need? In a review out today in the journal Neuron, a group of researchers from the University of California, Berkeley argue the latter—that because of certain brain mechanisms that change as we age, we are unable to get a necessary amount of sleep. Researchers say this knowledge not only gives them a platform to develop medication to target this problem, but also a means t

The Sleep Cure

MARK ZIELINSKI KNEW HE WAS ONTO SOMETHING when his mice stopped sleeping. Normally, the animals woke and slept on a 12-hour cycle. When the lights were on in the lab, the mice were active. When it went dark on a timer, down they went. But Zielinski, who teaches psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, had recently tweaked their schedule to keep the mice up past their bedtime. Zielinski and his colleagues would rustle the bedding in the mice’s cages to keep them from dozing off when they started to display the telltale signs of sleepiness—drooping lids, sluggish walk, EEG readings showing their b
