Sleep is vital to our mental, emotional and physical functioning. Research has shown that lack of sleep has a negative effect on mood, short-term memory, reaction time, alertness and the immune system. Factors that interfere with sleep include: stress, anxiety, caffeine consumption, alcohol consumption, eating late at night, overstimulation (TV, work, noise), medications (antidepressants, appetite suppressants and decongestants), health conditions (arthritis, hyperthyroidism and indigestion), and sleep apnea.
Alternately, there are many lifestyle habits that can promote healthy sleep, such as stopping caffeine consumption after noon, making your bedroom completely dark and avoiding activities that stimulate the brain (such as watching TV) before bed.
