Loosing Sleep Over It

A recent Gallup survey of adults over 50 years old showed that stress hindered nearly one in four in their ability to fall asleep in the month before the survey. Being overweight or having health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and cancer were also sighted as sleep burdens. Of course, sleep wasn't always interrupted by a grave health issue. A little less than half of all participants (43%) said they had often gotten up at night to go to the bathroom in the past month. The study also found that one in five participants reported getting less than six hours of nightly sleep and 45% agreed that they felt they needed more sleep than they had in their 20s.
