One benefit of winter is the slower pace and time spent at home to recharge. Winter is also a popular time to evaluate the state of your health and make any changes necessary before warmer weather arrives. If you experience sleep apnea and issues with your sleep, winter is the perfect time to create a nighttime routine to help you sleep peacefully.
