Lack of sleep linked to many health problems. 60-second video.

Oct 2, 2017 By Jeanne

A lack of sleep is really, really bad for your health. But, why, you ask?  Until recently, people thought that sleep was a passive state, merely giving your brain a break. But the latest science shows that sleep does so much more. In fact, your body uses sleep to regulate and cleanse its many systems. Sleep has even been compared to a dishwasher for the body, which is a great, accurate metaphor. A lack of sleep throws your entire system of circadian rhythms off, and a long list of health problems can result. This short video shows some of them, but it’s only scratching the surface. Take a look and get motivated to sleep better.
