Most of us love the long hot days of summer. But when you have trouble sleeping through the heat it can be very hard to enjoy.

Believe it or not, more than 40 million of us suffer from chronic sleep disorders, and the amount of you who suffer will only go up as those extra hours of daylight start to stick around.

According to local health officials sleep is the last thing we get to do at the end of a busy day, and it's the first thing to be sacrificed when there's just no time left in the day.

The amount of sleep you need each night changes as you age, so children need to sleep in a lot longer than adults.

So, what is the harm of not getting quite enough sleep, especially during this stretch of 90 degree days?

The answer might shock you.

"If people are not getting enough sleep it can cause moodiness upon other issues, like poor performance issues especially during the summer months." said Dawna Freeland, Fairmont General Hospital Respiratory Department Manager.
