Welcome to The Big Idea of the Week!
Quality sleep is essential for human health, yet 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. report getting less than 7 hours of sleep per night necessary for optimal health and well-being.
Sleep is regulated by our circadian rhythm, or “biological clock,” that synchronizes with our surrounding environment. Today’s fast-paced world has disrupted the circadian rhythm of millions resulting in poor immune health, increased risk for type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer, obesity, depression, and so much more.
