Why You Need Healthy Sleeping Habits

Sleep starts to take up less of our time as we get older and fill our days with different priorities such as work, upcoming deadlines, or social hangouts. In the United States, 35.2% of adults sleep, on average, for less than seven hours per night.

Having a healthy amount of sleep can help improve your mental health, lower your risk for chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease, and improve your mood. Sleep allows your body to rest and recharge for the next day. It is recommended that adults get up to 7 hours of sleep per night. Start changing your lifestyle habits now to prevent chronic diseases.
