Mental Health: Sleep

Sleep

“May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace.”

“Along with the physical changes that occur as we get older, changes to our sleep patterns are a part of the normal aging process. As people age they tend to have a harder time falling asleep and more trouble staying asleep than when they were younger.  It is a common misconception that sleep needs decline with age.  In fact, research demonstrates that our sleep needs remain constant throughout adulthood.”
