More from this show

A new study by the University of Arizona, the Baylor College of Medicine and the U.S. General Services Administration shows that low humidity levels in an office environment can increase stress and cause sleep problems. The study tracked 134 individuals across the country who were closely monitored. We hear more about the study from Dr. Esther Sternberg, director of the University of Arizona Institute on Place, Wellbeing and Performance and research director of the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the UArizona Health Sciences.
