Sleep is something most of us don’t get enough of – as much as we might like to. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s reported that 30 percent or 40.6 million of American adults are sleeping six or fewer hours a day. Sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain, lead to heart disease, lead to metabolic disruption, in addition to the inability to focus.
