Your body needs sleep, and here is a quick list of reasons why.

~ We are told to get 8 hours for a reason.  Both under and over sleeping is linked to poor health.

~ Poor sleep habits have been linked to obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes to name a few.

~ When you don’t get enough sleep, you are robbed of certain “stages” of sleep that are very beneficial.

~ People with disturbed sleep cycles get sick more often.

~ Studies actually show that we are no more sleep deprived than generations before us.

~ Phones are keeping teens awake and they are at risk of becoming sleep deprived from the start.

~ More light exposure during the day and less at night can actually affect your “body clock”, which prepares you for sleep.
