Everyone wants a good night’s sleep. The problem is that while everyone wants it, a lot of people work against themselves and aren’t even aware of it! Most people think they just need to lay down and turn out the light; the truth is there’s so much more to it than that.
It’s one thing to live in the moment. It’s another thing entirely to not pay attention to your health and well-being. Waking up at the right time, under the right circumstances, and being aware of how much caffeine you drink throughout the day is a great start. It’s also a good idea to limit your daily alcohol intake. Those are things you’ve probably heard before; and they are all great starts.
But really, getting a solid and restful night’s sleep means planning for it all day.
And what’s more, so much depends on getting enough sleep. The average adult needs between 7-9 hours of sleep a night to maintain a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Not getting enough sleep means more than just being tired. It impacts everything from your energy level to your emotional and physical health. Not getting a good night’s sleep is hazardous to your health!
