Introduction to Sleep Disorders
Natural sleep is as important as diet and exercise. Some individuals who feel tired all through the day may truly have a sleep disorder, although others could also have a problem, as they may not allow themselves to get enough sleep.
An adult needs about 7-8 hours of sleep every night to rest well. However, in reality, an average adult generally gets less than 7 hours of sleep every night.
If disturbances in sleep are not taken care of, they can interfere with our ability to work, drive, engage in social activities and overall quality of life.
