Abstract: First paragraph: Sleep is essential for life and integral to health and well-being (Roehrs, 2000). However, during the aging process, sleep patterns become disrupted, which leads to sleep deprivation (Stanley, 2005). Inadequate sleep has adverse effects on the body, including the production of higher cortisol (stress hormone) levels, which causes wear and tear physiologically, and further contributes to wakefulness (Stanley, 2005).
