On behalf of client the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), LCWA secured a placement in GQ’s May issue as part of the magazine’s “12-Month Body Tune Up.” Recognizing that one in four Americans don’t get enough sleep, Dr. Safwan Badr provided tips to help readers sleep more – and better. Lack of sleep is linked to a higher risk of diabetes, obesity and heart disease. “The return on investment of good sleep is incalculable,” said Badr. “Even if you’re stuck with less sleep than you’d like, there are shortcuts to boost quality if not quantity.” Badr’s tips include limiting caffeine and alcohol, establishing a consistent bedtime routine and avoiding watching TV in bed.
