DANGERS OF INTERUPTED SLEEP  .  .  .

this recent sleep story discusses the dangers of interrupted sleep throughout the night. Although you may physically be in bed for 8 hours, that doesn't mean you are getting restful ZzZ's for that amount of time. Due to interruptions throughout the night, you could be getting as little as 4 hours of sleep which is a recipe for mood swings, inability to concentrate, and health issues such as weight gain.

This story also highlighted that going to bed later, may actually help you sleep better – "People who go to bed later have better moods in the morning than people who go to bed at their regular time, but whose sleep is broken up during the night."

 Dr. David Volpi, Sleep Expert and Founder of EOS Sleep Center in NYC

On Monday, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority President/CEO Rossi Ralenkotter shared the following powerful message: 
 
“The thoughts and prayers of all of Las Vegas go out to the victims and their families. "This was a horrific, yet isolated, incident. At this time, it is important to allow the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police to conclude their investigation into the incident, and to attend to the needs of the victims and their families. Las Vegas is a strong community that will work through this tragic incident. We are grateful beyond words to our incomparable law enforcement, first responders and everyone who continues to help victims and their families.”
