When snoring is a concern - Sleep Dallas

Maybe you’ve heard from your partner that your snoring is keeping them awake, or maybe your snoring is waking you up in the middle of the night. Either way, you suffer from a snoring problem that impacts every aspect of your life — from your low productivity during the day to your lack of restful sleep at night. Snoring can be caused by many factors and it’s important that you seek medical advice if you suffer from it on a regular basis. The good news is that once you identify what is causing your snoring, you can begin to treat the problem and find peaceful sleep again. (more…)

Food that helps sleep

We’ve all been there: Lying in bed, wide-awake, cursing the coffee we had a 10 am this morning. Or perhaps it was the workout we did after work. Or maybe it’s that deadline we’ve been stressing about. For anyone that has suffered from elusive or unrefreshing sleep, you know that the smallest thing can derail a good night’s rest. The good news, however, is that small things can also improve your potential to get quality sleep. And one of those things is diet. (more…)

Bed and nightstand in bedroom

You can’t remember the last time you got a good night’s sleep. You find yourself getting sick quite frequently, catching a cold or flu, or generally just feeling under the weather. You chalk it up to having to run around for your busy schedule and the fact that you go to bed at a different time every night, but you’re not quite sure what’s really causing you to feel run down all the time.

It’s not rocket science: a good night’s sleep makes you feel good, energetic, and productive, while a poor night’s sleep often makes you feel anxious, foggy, irritable, or even downright sick. And, in fact, it’s true that sleep is inextricably linked to a number of health factors. People who get enough sleep typically maintain and lose weight more easily, have better memory and cognition, and are more productive. They also reduce their risk of depression, heart disease, stroke and diabetes as compared to those who do not get enough sleep. Sleep is so important that the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognizes insufficient sleep as a ‘public health problem.’ (more…)

Key Findings from Our 2018 Dallas Sleep Survey

Filed under: Uncategorized — brianna bloom @ 7:06 am

Habits that Contribute to Sleep Challenges

It is well-researched and widely accepted that sleep is a major contributing factor to overall health and wellness. Yet, when compared to other factors like diet and exercise, it is an often overlooked or compromised priority that takes a backseat in the cadence of our daily lives. According to the the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one-third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. In Dallas, the 2017 American Fitness Index report showed that only 67 percent of Dallas area residents were getting the recommended minimum of seven or more hours of sleep per day — one of several factors contributing to Dallas ranking 38th of 50 on the index, which measures health and community fitness at the metropolitan level in the United States.

Sleep Soundly: Creating the Perfect Sleep Environment & Bedtime Routine

Filed under: Uncategorized — brianna bloom @ 8:21 pm

Sleep environment and bedroom routine

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one-third of adults in the United States get less than the recommended seven hours of sleep each night. And that’s despite the fact that it’s well-researched and widely accepted that adequate sleep is a major contributor to our overall health and well-being, physically and mentally.

Clearly, there are various factors that contribute to one’s sleep habits and ability to get sufficient sleep, but two key factors over which we have (almost) complete control are our sleep environment and bedtime routine. Even just a few tweaks to our bedroom and/or lifestyle habits can have a significant impact on our sleep quality.

Severe Hot Flashes Linked to Increased Risk of Sleep Apnea in Women

Filed under: Uncategorized — brianna bloom @ 5:18 pm

Sleep apnea is a condition that afflicts an estimated 22 million Americans and is generally believed to be vastly under-diagnosed in the general population. The difficulty in diagnosis originates in the fact that many of the condition’s symptoms can be attributed to a number of ailments, and the medical community is still working to understand and recognize symptoms as possible indications of sleep apnea.
