Sleep

Sleep. It is something we all need but many of us get too little of it! Sometimes we need a little reminder of how important it is to help us get back on track. Sleep is not like money, although we can “catch up” on sleep after a busy week, we can’t bank sleep hours like we can money. If we don’t sleep enough each night there is not a true way to make up for it after the fact. This is why it is so important to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. In addition, getting enough sleep is important for overall health. While we sleep, our body uses that time to rest, recover, and recharge. It builds muscles, repairs cells, allows the brain to form memories and improve recall. Additionally, it can boost your immune system and improve your heart health. Sleep just like exercise and nutrition is vital for your overall health and helps keep your body healthy and strong!
