Sleep is something all humans require but often gets shortchanged by our busy lives. Studies have shown how crucial a proper nights sleep is to determining health and living a balanced lifestyle.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends adults get an average of seven to nine hours of sleep per night. This number increases the younger you are. It’s estimated that 80% of people use the weekends to catch up on sleep. Developing a consistent sleep schedule benefits the quality and quantity of your sleep by balancing your circadian rhythms. With a proper rest and wake cycle, you are not only ensuring you age gracefully but allow your body to restore fully for the day ahead.
