Hygienist Dr. Peter Lohmann has discovered why.
And the reason: Sleep hygiene.
“Sleep hygiene is one of the most powerful tools that we have in our arsenal to improve the quality of our sleep,” Lohman says.
That’s why sleep hygiene is so important to any good health care practitioner, he says.
But it’s a topic that’s often overlooked in the medical community, Lohmans findings suggest.
The study, published in the journal Sleep Medicine, looked at how different sleep hygiene techniques were able to improve sleep quality.
For the study, researchers surveyed 6,000 healthcare providers and followed them for more than two years.
The survey found that more than 90 percent of respondents had experienced some form of sleep hygiene at some point in their life.
They also reported having tried sleeping at home or in a hotel.
The researchers looked at the ways that sleep hygiene worked, and how it affected their patients’ sleep.
They looked at all the ways sleep hygiene affected patients’ health: pain, nausea, heartburn, and sleepiness.
The team also analyzed the medical records of sleepers to see how they responded to sleep hygiene treatments.
The results revealed that, on average, the nurses who had the highest scores on sleep hygiene were more likely to have sleep problems.
They were also more likely, on the whole, to report sleep disturbances, such as daytime sleepiness, fatigue, and sleeplessness.
That could mean that nurses who treated their patients more closely were more successful at treating their sleep problems, the researchers say.
Sleep hygiene also affects sleep quality in a patient’s eyes, which can affect how well a patient is able to stay asleep, Luhmann says.
If a patient has eye problems, they’re more likely not to sleep well, he explains.
“If they’re too sleepy to stay up, they can be awake later, and that can make their health worse,” Luhmans study authors say.
So if you’re concerned about how your sleep may be affected by sleep hygiene, you should look into the research, the authors say, but be aware that sleep problems can be worse with sleep hygiene treatment.
“The good news is that we’ve found that sleep is a very complex process,” Lahmann says, so it’s hard to pin down exactly how sleep hygiene affects patients.
If you’re interested in sleep hygiene or just want to learn more, the research will be available on the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Sleep Medicine website at nscm.nih.gov.
