Better Sleep Quality vs. Quantity
It’s hard to avoid.. we’re working longer hours, often with longer commutes and more stress, leaving less time for domestic chores — maintaining the house, paying bills, dealing with paperwork or projects for the kids — all of which gets stuffed into the twilight hours or early morning. Sound familiar?
Then there’s the other modern habit – staying up late on phones or other electronic devices. The blue light from those devices interferes with your body’s production of melatonin, the key hormone for sleep, further throwing off the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle called the circadian rhythym.
Importance of Sleep Quality. Should be more interested in quality sleep or the quantity of sleep you get? Good news for the night owls out there. New studies show that how you feel during your waking hours depends more on how well you have slept – sleep quality over sleep quantity!
