Maintaining the Quality of Sleep as we Age

Posted Jul 21 2010 10:45am

All of us, young and old, need our 8 hours.  Although we experience natural changes to our sleep cycle as we age, studies show that the amount of time our bodies need to sleep remains constant throughout adulthood. But we don’t always get the sleep we require. RLS, sleep apnea, insomnia, heart problems, psychiatric problems, and other medical conditions increase as we get older causing disturbance in sleep. It is important for us to understand why these changes occur and how we can deal with them so that they don’t hinder our ability to get a good night’s sleep .To learn more about these changes and ways to improve sleep quality check out : http://healthysleep.med.harvard.edu/healthy/science/variations/changes-in-sleep-with-age
