In both men and women, the average amount of sleep has been steadily decreasing and in recent 

years has dropped from 7-8 hours, to 6-7 hours a night. This may not seem like a big difference, but 

it does make a huge difference to your body! During the day, your body is working hard to keep up 

with your day and it requires the appropriate amount of time to rest, recover, and recharge to do it 

all over again. Most people think that not getting a good night's sleep simply means you'll be a little 

tired the next day, maybe a little foggy. It's nothing that a cup of coffee can't fix, right? Coffee does 

help, but loading yourself up with caffeine is a band-aid solution and not a permanent fix. Lack Of 

Sleep And Health Lack of sleep is a factor in some of the most serious health problems and can be a 

trigger for illness and disease. Studies have found that people who have a shortened sleep, which is 

defined by less than 6 hours, are at an increased risk of heart disease. In 2011, the European Heart 

Journal's review of 15 medical studies involving almost 475,000 people, found that the ones with 

shortened sleep cycles had a 48% increased risk of developing or dying from coronary heart disease. 

They also found that these people were also at a 15% greater risk of developing or dying from 

stroke. The study also links long sleepers, or people who average nine or more hours a night, to a 

38% increased risk in developing or dying from coronary heart disease, and a 65% increased risk of 

stroke. Therefore, balance is the key. Daily Distractions And Technology The world we live in today 

doesn't make it easy to get a good night's sleep. People are reporting higher levels of stress caused 

by things like work, current events, family situations, and other factors that didn't affect past 

generations. We are also using more and more technology that affects our sleep cycles without us 

even realizing it. There are many sleep aids that can be purchased but they are artificial and may 

even cause dependency with some people. As always, Mother Nature has provided us with a natural 

solution to this ever increasing problem. The Ultimate Sleep Recipe..
