Your Body and Sleep

Many of us have too much going on in our lives with too little time to do it. Often sleep can be the first thing to be sacrificed when we don’t have enough time, but sleep is not just a luxury that we afford when it works, it is something necessary for our bodies to function. Your body uses sleep as a method to recharge and without it, we can begin to experience health issues and decreases in our body’s ability to perform daily tasks. Consider how much sleep your body needs and why it is important so that you can embrace a more restful night’s sleep.
