Sleep is an important aspect for maintaining good Physical and Mental Health.
With the current lifestyles full of travelling, working late as per the demands of the job, pressure to achieve targets and more, sleep cycles are the first thing to suffer for a vast majority of people. Compounded by this is the effect of all the new technological gadgets- Smartphones, TV screens, LED lights that we are all surrounded with. The normal rhythm – Circadian (including our inherent Biological Clock) is disturbed as a result leading to all sorts of sleep problems.
