Why Sleep Is So Important to Your Everyday Life
A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for your health; it’s just as important as eating healthy and exercising! Poor sleep can make you overweight and put you at greater risk of heart disease and stroke, as well cause depression. On the other hand, good sleepers tend to eat fewer calories, have enhanced concentration, and are more productive in their daily lives.
