Yawning indicates inviting a host of predicaments that are more severe than a bad night’s sleep. If you did not have a satisfactory sleep then you can be open to plethora of illnesses like attacks, strokes, cancer and dementia which can likely shorten our lives. Those who have difficulty in getting rest at night have lot of company as catastrophic sleep-loss epidemic affects modern society according to Matthew Walker, director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California Berkeley.
According to study conducted by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of three Americans does not get sufficient sleep. South Dakota ranks at the top in getting restful sleep whereas Hawaii had the lowest healthy sleeping rate in the country.
Dr. Wayne Giles, director of the C.D.C.’s Division of Population Health, said last year that as a nation we are being deprived of sufficient sleep. He also said that if we follow certain routine like sleeping at a fixed time each night, waking up at the same time early morning and switching off televisions, computers, mobile devices from the bedroom, can provide with a much needed healthy sleep.
Walker also says that we have condemned sleep with the onslaught of laziness. We are thoroughly busy throughout the day and we are proud to pronounce the fact. However, the culture of getting less sleep isn’t novel. World leaders like Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher even boasted about getting away with very little sleep.
