Sleep and Your Health
As life gets more hectic, it is all too easy to go without sleep. In fact, many Americans only get 6 hours of sleep a night or less. You need ample sleep to help restore your brain and body. Not getting enough sleep can be bad for your health in a number of ways.
Sleep gives your body and brain time to recover from the stresses of the day. After a good night’s sleep, you perform better and are better at making decisions. Sleep can help you feel more alert, optimistic, and get along with people better. Sleep also helps your body ward off disease.
Different people need different amounts of sleep. Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night for good health and mental functioning. Some adults need up to 9 hours a night.
