Call it the cycle of insomnia. You stress about catching enough sleep, but that stress actually prevents you from snagging the quality snooze you need.
Unfortunately, that cycle can snowball out of control. When your body loses out on valuable deep and REM sleep, your happy hormones don’t get replenished. That’s when your stress hormones take over, ready to take their place.
The good news? There are a few steps you can take to break the sleep stress cycle. Take a look at the video above, created in partnership with Sleep Number, to learn how.
Just like diet and exercise, sleep is unique to each person and important for optimal health. Sleep Number® beds adjust on each side to your ideal level of firmness, comfort and support — your Sleep Number® setting. And when you add SleepIQ® technology you’ll know what to adjust for your best possible sleep.
