Sleep Deprivation Can Harm Your Health

Silver Cross Hospital offers free lecture on Sleep vs. No Sleep

New Lenox, IL (Feb. 25, 2014)— We’ve all experienced the feeling of utter exhaustion from having a bad night’s rest. But if you find yourself routinely tired, unable to concentrate at work and having mood swings, then you could be suffering from sleep deprivation.  According to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), if you get six hours or less of sleep a night, then you aren’t getting an appropriate night’s rest in order for your body to recharge.

In honor of National Sleep Awareness Week, Silver Cross Hospital is offering a free lecture on how a lack of sleep can affect your overall health.
