Do You Make Quality Sleep a Priority?

You may just chalk up a bad night's sleep to feeling a little bit off the next day, but in reality, regularly getting a bad night's sleep can ruin your health.

A constant lack of quality sleep can lead to high blood pressure and later heart problems, and a new study is looking at the correlation between waking up during the night and developing Alzheimer's. And even without these long-term effects of chronic bad-quality sleep, there are the immediate ones: the next-day grogginess, irritability, and feeling foggy-headed.

Do all these bad effects encourage you to make getting quality sleep a priority?
