Changes in lifestyle like avoiding caffeine before going to bed can address sleep disorders that impair physical, psychological and social aspects of well-being. Sleep loss and sleep disorders are among the most common health problems.
Yet, they are often overlooked. It is estimated that 50 to 70 million Americans chronically suffer from a sleep disorder, which affects daily functioning as well as their health and longevity. While 7-8 hours of sleep every day is recommended, almost 30% of Americans are sleeping 6 hours or less.
