Study finds that sleep disorders affect men and women differently
(American Academy of Sleep Medicine) A new study suggests that men and women are affected differently by sleep disorders. Results show that women are more likely than men to have more severe symptoms of depression, trouble sleeping at night, and excessive daytime sleepiness. Women also have a higher degree of difficulty concentrating and remembering things due to sleepiness or tiredness. In contrast, male snoring was more likely than female snoring to force bed partners to sleep in different rooms. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Experts Review 8 Weird Ways To Prevent Snoring
Is snoring keeping you up at night or driving your partner crazy? You’re not alone. Data from a longitudinal study published in 1993 found that about 44 percent of men and 28 percent of women snore habitually, so this problem is happening in bedrooms across the nation.  Snoring happens when the upper airway muscles relax and constrict air flow through the throat, forcing air through a small space and causing a vibration — think of the way a kazoo or saxophone makes noise. This sound can be annoying for others — and can also wake you up at night, leaving you feel sleepy and foggy-headed the ...

The next time you tell yourself that you'll sleep when you're dead, realize that you're making a decision that can make that day come much sooner. Pushing late into the night is a health and productivity killer.

Rosacea is a skin condition generally found in people over the age of 30 and characterized by redness on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and watery eyes, according to the National Rosacea Society. Bumps and pimples can develop and, over time, blood vessels on the face can become more prevalent. In certain cases, a thickening of the skin can also occur.  While t...

The Necessary Luxury of Rest
I thought it was kind of funny recently when someone called me a "medium-hard" worker. It kind of shocked me. I'd always thought of myself as a very hard worker. But then I considered it a kind of success because I had been trying to slow myself down for a while now. I used to run through life at breakneck speed, always in competition. So notching back to a normal, if medium, worker was an improvement. It's true that, like Walt Whitman, "I loaf and invite my soul." I look forward to the sweet succor of rest.
