(Bangor, Maine) – Most healthy adults require between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, but for the 70 million Americans who have a sleep problem, nighttime is often spent counting sheep instead of getting sleep.
“Sleep is incredibly important for the body,” says Deb Gerow, manager, Sleep Center of Maine. “When you become over tired, your stress level can increase. Chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease can be made worse if you don’t have enough sleep. It’s an important health issue on par with eating the right foods and getting regular exercise.”
EMMC’s sleep center experts encourage people to think about their sleep habits during National Sleep Awareness Week, which is recognized March 2-8. There are many symptoms that could indicate a sleep disorder, including:
-Headaches throughout the day
- Frequent fatigue during waking hours
- Loud snoring (often noticed by a bed partner)
- Stopping of breathing during sleep
- Personality changes or problems with memory and concentration
