Sleep is essential to our health and wellness, but unfortunately many people don't get enough of it in their normal routine. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about one in three Americans fall short of the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep. While lack of sleep may sound like nothing more than a nuisance, it can have wide-reaching effects on your overall health and wellness. Research shows that people who don't get enough sleep are more likely to suffer from heart disease, which is currently the leading cause of death in the United States.

It's unknown how lack of sleep affects the heart, though some experts believe it causes increased levels of stress hormones like cortisol. Regardless, lack of sleep may leave you susceptible to heart disease along with other potentially dangerous diseases and ailments. The problem is that not everyone can fall asleep or stay asleep. Some people turn and turn for hours in bed while trying to fall asleep, all to no avail.
