SSM - Sleep Specialists Management
You spend at least one quarter of your life sleeping. Shouldn't you be doing it right? As an adult, you need 7-8 hours of sleep per night. When you do not get enough sleep time, your body creates a "sleep-debt" and will demand that debt to be repaid eventually. Over time, your body may get used to this deprivation but your judgment, reaction time and other functions will still be impaired.
Sleep and sleep-related problems play a role in a large number of human disorders and affect almost every field of medicine. At least 40 million Americans each year suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders each year, and an additional 20 million experience occasional sleeping problems. These disorders and the resulting sleep deprivation interfere with work, driving, and social activities.
