If there’s anything to look forward to after a long, hectic day it’s a restful night’s sleep. Getting adequate sleep (6-8 hours if you’re an adult), is an essential part of overall health. Research proves that getting good sleep has surprising benefits and is just as important as diet and exercise. When you get the proper shut eye you’re more likely to keep your weight in check, can stave off depression, improve memory, and avoid accidents.
But if you’re tossing and turning each night and can’t seem to the sleep you need, there are ways to make your bedtime routine better, and get the benefits that come along with a good night’s sleep. These tips come from Mayo Clinic.
Sometimes lack of sleep can be a sign of a medical problem. If you try all of the above and still can’t manage to get a good night’s sleep, contact your doctor.
