For some people, it is truly a luxury to be able to fall asleep and stay asleep. If you are an insomniac, you may also be at risk for sleep apnea. Anyone that suffers from a sleep disorder truly understands the torture of trying to fall asleep whenever you want to get some rest.
Do you have a tough time getting through every hectic workday? No matter what your job is, it is very important to come to work well-rested after a good night’s sleep. A recent study of nearly 4,000 people in Finland of working age, from 30 to 64, found that getting enough sleep every night meant the worker was less likely to take time off from work due to illness.
In an interesting study released last month, June 2014, it was found that insomniacs that suffer from the variation of insomnia characterized by a sharply shortened duration of sleep are at an increased cancer risk. The study was conducted by Dr. Julio Fernandez-Mendoza from the Penn State College of Medicine. In addition, the study considered the existence of depression in the patients studied.
