More than 40 million Americans suffer from chronic, long-term sleep disorders, and an additional 20 million Americans report occasional sleeping problems based on data from the National Institutes of Health. Bad sleeping habits can lead to an increase in your anxiety, high blood pressure, and a variety of conditions that can put you at risk for chronic diseases. Having poor sleeping habits is a bad habit.
Bad habits are choices that hurt your physical or mental health. Overeating, smoking, and substance abuse can cause heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Having healthy habits can increase your lifespan, boost your energy, and improve your memory.
