rest” may not be a cute way of describing a restful night of sleep.
When we get the right amount of sleep at night, it helps us to be
more alert, but it also helps our mood and even our physical health.
If you've ever missed a few hours, or even a day of sleep, then you
already know what it can do to the way that you feel, the way that
you look, and the way that you interact with others.
in a day and age when people are expected to work 10 to 12 hour
shifts and balance a family life, it's often your sleep that ends up
getting shortchanged. Most people don't imagine that they need more
than four to five hours, but in reality you may need as many as nine
hours of sleep depending on your age, your physical level activity,
your diet, and other indicators. The trick is to find your sweet
spot, and then to put that as your highest priority. Here's why.
