The Better Sleep Issue

 A Letter From The Editor

Sleep is arguably one of the most important things in our life (right up there with food). A significant amount of each night is devoted to sleeping, and without enough sleep the next day can be pretty miserable. This issue explores that, and the many things which can affect sleep. Sleep disorders like insomnia, sleep walking, and sleep apnea affect many of us. With a better understanding and perhaps a doctor's visit, it's possible to improve our quality of life despite the disorder, or even see it cured. The mattress on our bed is another possible source of sleepness nights, and a relatively easy problem to fix. From taking better naps to keeping our children in bed through the night, we can all find small ways to give ourselves better sleep. I hope you can join me in feeling just how luxurious that can be.

Warmly,
