a-little-nightcapWe’ve all done it.  Can’t get to sleep at night, so we make our way to the liquor cabinet for a little nightcap.

But a new study shows that we might want to think twice about drinking ourselves into a peaceful slumber.  While it has been proven that alcohol does help us fall into deep sleep faster, new information shows that that the sleep may not be a satisfying for our bodies.

Researchers found that the alcohol actually causes disruptions in the sleep cycle, therefore decreasing the quality of sleep, and wreaking havoc on concentration, motor skills and memory during the day.

But hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!
