May is Better Sleep Month

May is Better Sleep Month!

Sleep is a crucial component of your overall health and a lack of sleep, particularly over time, can drastically impact physiological and cognitive functions. Studies even show that for every 45 minutes of sleep lost, there's a 5-10% decrease in proper body function/performance!

Some of the impacts on cognitive function may include:

  • Negative impact on memory

  • Greater potential for developing a moody temper

  • Lessens creativity

  • Increases anxiety

  • Lessens problem solving skills

  • Decreases reaction time

  • Increases stress response

  • And more!

The physiological impacts can be just as detrimental:

  • Weakens the immune system

  • Impacts the body's insulin release

  • Increases the risk of diabetes

  • Increases the risk of high blood pressure

  • Increases the potential for becoming more injury prone

  • And much more!

Get more quality sleep and improve your overall sleep habits today, to improve your health and well-being for tomorrow and beyond! Call (507) 836-6111 to learn more about how MCMC can help through our sleep medicine & sleep studies service offerings.
