Get More Sleep
Sleep is an essential part of being healthy. In order for your mind and body to function at their best, you need to have good rest each night. On average, children need about 10 hours of sleep each night and adults need about 8 hours. But due to busy schedules and around the clock access to technology, many people are not getting enough rest. Lack of sleep increases your risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and depression. Fortunately there are ways to encourage your children and yourself to get a great night’s rest and have a strong foundation for a healthy life.
