Our They pay people to do this? This was my thought as I tucked a notebook in the nook of my arm and headed out to sell newspaper advertising in Winchester. Many years later I realize it was good I felt that way because the pay would be too low to be the incentive. It would be all about the rush of excitement I get when I see my ideas come to life on the printed page. The first time I met Elaine Hillis Nelson we were attending a Tennessee Press Association meeting. She supplied one of my life’s “Ahha” moments. Tossing her mane of shiny red hair, she simplified the hour long sales train-

The question became, “How can we offer them a new way to showcase their business?” Focus magazine is the answer. Our area abounds with an eclectic mix of products and services provided by professional, caring people who share their neighbors pride in family and community. Turn the pages of Focus and discover the dedication of local business owners who have served this market for many, many years.

How can we offer Southern Middle Tennessee businesses a new way to showcase their business? FOCUS is the answer. ing session by declaring, “It’s all in knowing how to dance.” When our paths crossed over 20 years later, I was impressed by her publishing experiences, especially her role of publisher at a New York Times owned paper. I was managing the Coffee County Shopper and introduced her to the Free Paper Industry. Through our involvement in the Southern Advertisers Papers Association, the regional group, and American Free Community Papers, the national group, we traveled the US and Canada sharing ideas and gleaning wisdom from our peers. During the last year, we realized we wanted to utilize our experience in print and strengthen the relationships we’ve forged with Southern Middle Tennessee businesses.

When you visit their business or use their services, tell them you enjoyed getting to know them as they shared their story in Focus magazine. Elaine and I are called the “Tennessee Twins” by our friends in the national Free Paper Association, not because we look alike, because of our pride in the state we call home. We have reached retirement age, but can not resist feeling the ink in our blood flow with the ageless excitement of seeing our ideas come to life on the printed page. We welcome you to share our excitement as you explore the pages of Focus and gain a new appreciation of the Southern Middle Tennessee business community.

A recession is not only tough on the pocketbook – it can also be bad for your health. More and more Americans are lying awake at night worrying about the economy and their personal finances, according to the National Sleep Foundation’s annual poll about the nation’s sleep habits.

Getting Enough Sleep For good health, quality and quantity of slumber matters It’s estimated that one-third of Americans are losing sleep over the current state of affairs in the country, according to the most recent poll results released in March 2009. The average adult gets just six hours and 40 minutes of sleep per night, according to the study. An increasing number of Americans (20 percent) report that they get less than six hours of sleep per night. Nearly one-third (27 percent) attribute their lack of good sleep to distress over their personal finances, the economy or employment. And the poll found a significant rise in the number of people – 64 percent – who experience a sleep problem at least a few nights a week. The Institute of Medicine estimates that 50 to 70 million Americans chronically suffer from sleep disorders and sleep problems. The number of Americans with sleep problems has increased from 13 to 20 percent in just eight years – and this daily fatigue impacts life in many ways, from our physical functioning to our mental alertness and ultimately, our long-term health. How important is sufficient sleep? Important enough that the U.S. Army recently revised its recommendations for the amount of nightly sleep for infantrymen, from four hours per night during deployment to a minimum of seven to eight hours, to sustain “operational readiness.” The National Sleep Foundation confirms that while needs vary, most adults require between seven and nine hours of sleep. Teens and children need even more – from nine to 14 hours each night. This data confirms what common sense has long told us: the more wellrested we are, the better equipped we are to deal with the challenges that come our way each day, whether the issue at hand is national security or negotiating the hook-up line at school carpool. Sleep is a time for the body to restore and regulate various internal functions that keep us healthy. This includes muscle and tissue repair, the removal of toxins from the body, hormone production and maintenance of the body’s circadian rhythms. Lack of sleep can cause stress, make us more prone to illness and depression, decrease our energy level, and affect our memory. The longterm effects of insufficient sleep are more than just chronic drowsiness or difficulty in focusing on and performing daily tasks. Sleep deprivation has been linked to an increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack and stroke. Poor sleep has many causes, from lifestyle to medical conditions. A proper diet, regular exercise, and an established sleep routine are simple ways to promote good sleep. Sleep apnea is a common disorder that affects the quality of our sleep. A person who has sleep apnea stops breathing for 10 seconds or more during sleep – and these episodes can occur as many as 50 times an hour. The two types of sleep apnea include obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is more common and involves the blocking or narrowing or airways in the nose, mouth or throat – generally due to the relaxation of the throat muscles and tongue during sleep. Central sleep apnea is caused by a malfunction of the central nervous system, and generally seen in people who have 6

suffered a stroke, heart failure or other forms of heart and lung disease. Symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, feeling sleepy during the day, tossing and turning during the night, insomnia, and awakening with headaches. Sleep apnea can be diagnosed through a simple test ordered by your doctor and is treatable in many ways, from modifications in your diet to the use of a breathing device at night. The Center for Sleep Medicine at Heritage Medical Center provides a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. The center offers a home-like atmosphere designed to help patients feel as comfortable as possible during their sleep evaluation. Our experienced, registered sleep technicians utilize computerized equipment to perform detailed sleep evaluations and generate comprehensive diagnostic reports.

Getting Enough? The body’s sleep requirements change as we age. The National Sleep Foundation recommends the following guidelines for selected age groups:

Infants 2 months 2-12 months Toddlers/Children 12-18 months 18 months – 3 years 3-5 years 5-12 years Adolescents Adults

10.5 – 18 hours* 14-15 hours*

13-15 hours* 2-14 hours* 11-13 hours* 9-11 hours 8.5-9.5 hours 7-9 hours

* including naps Other mild sleeping disorders can be treated through behavioral therapy, medication or alternative therapy. This might include relaxation or breathing exercises, prescription medications, a new exercise routine or meditation. Be aware that medications for a sleeping disorder are generally prescribed by your doctor and are intended for short-term use. For more information on getting a good night’s rest, contact your physician to see if a sleep evaluation is right for you.
