With so much happening in our world, it can make it difficult to relax and fall asleep. This can be more than just an annoyance; it can hurt your mental health! Adults should generally get about 8 whole hours of sleep per night.

When you sleep, your brain is able to:

  • remove waste
  • recharge
  • sharpen your memory and learning capabilities

If you are not sleeping enough, you could weaken your immune system, slow down your thinking, and gain weight. Sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your mental and physical health.
