A good night’s sleep is like proper diet and exercise. Research consistently shows that good sleep helps the body fight disease and maintain mental and emotional balance, making it one of the most important factors in overall health and happiness.
Still many people just do not get the recommended amount of sleep needed each night. Instead, they sacrifice sleep and wake up to the consequences including difficulty concentrating, irritability, weakened immune system and even higher stress. The good news is that it does not have to be this way.
