Sleep: The Key To Vitality and Well-Behaved Kids

Most of us know, or at least acknowledge, that we must eat right and exercise in order to remain healthy. But what about sleep? Sleep is essential – a key component to a healthy lifestyle. Yet, majority of us struggle and report having sleep problems at least once per week.

Did you know that sleep deprivation can lead to problems including obesity, heart disease, depression and impaired immune function? (Reported by The National Sleep Foundation) Sleep problems are no longer adult issues either. New research shows that there is a direct correlation between disruptive behavior in children and sleep. School children who are disruptive with aggressive behaviors are twice as likely to show signs of sleep problems compared to well- behaved kids. (Parker-Pope, Tara. “The School Bully is Sleepy”. Web blog post. Ask Well. The New York Times. June 2011. well.blogs.nytimes.com)

So how do we combat this problem? How do we get a good night’s sleep, protect our children and get quality sleep which is a predictor of physical and cognitive health, wellness, and vitality?

One of the best ways to achieve optimum sleep is to make sure that you create the perfect environment.
