No wonder coffee is such a popular way for Americans to start their day. We are a sleep-deprived nation -- at least according to a survey by Consumer Reports. The Washington Post's health blog says the survey found that 60 percent of respondents had trouble falling or staying asleep or woke up feeling tired. It seems that work-related stress keeps most people up at night, along with health problems and financial worries. If you think you might have a sleep disorder, the Sleep Waves website has a list of common signs and symptoms, and a downloadable sleep diary to keep track of your pre-bedtime activities, nighttime rest and awakenings. Peninsula Sleep Waves runs Peninsula Regional Medical Center's sleep center, and can be reached at 410-749-4040.
