The month of February is mostly known for two significant occasions - Valentine’s Day and American Heart Health Month. While we look forward to all the chocolatey treats associated with the holiday of love, the irony of indulging in sweet, sugary luxuries during a time when we are also focusing on taking care of our health doesn’t go unnoticed!

Did you know the average individual will spend almost one-third of their life sleeping? Many of us, young and old, however, battle with sleep from time to time.
