Reasons You Cannot Sleep Well at Night
Do you turn all night and feel exhausted in the morning?
Millions of Americans need a wake-up call every morning. Here are a few surprising reasons you are not sleeping well: Sleep deprivation can sometimes be due the things that happened before the bed. One surprising reason can be your loved one, your partner. When they are in pain, it can affect your sleep, and in fact, the closer the partners are emotionally the more they can feel each others’ pain.

The room temperature is overall a very important factor, and the optimum temperature is between 64 and 68 degrees.
Good sleep at night can largely affect your overall health: how much you weigh, how much stressed you get, how strong your immune system is, how high is your blood pressure, how safe you are from diabetes and heart disease,…
… you can assume that as one single best thing you can do for your health.
