Shoot for 7 hours a night but there may be a different number of sleep hours needed for you.
Why? Without enough sleep you are more likely to get colds, have tummy troubles, struggle with memory, be irritable and moody, gain weight, suffer with headaches, get in a car accident and have troubles with vision.
Healthy Sleep tips include:
* go to sleep and get up at the same time everyday, even on weekends
* avoid bright screens 2 hours before sleeping
* get regular exercise
* avoid caffeine, alcohol and big meals in the evening
* keep your bedroom dark, cool and quiet
Sleep is vital to your well-being!!
