Over half of Americans don’t get the amount of sleep that they need each night. It might seem like a small thing to miss out on, but lack of sleep can cause major risks to both personal and public health.
Lack of sleep leads to accidents behind the wheel, at work, and while operating machinery. Additionally, getting less than the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep per night greatly increases your risk of chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, depression, and obesity.
