Sleep and Wellbeing

Getting enough sleep is essential for maintaining optimal health and wellbeing. Sleep is as vital to good health as regular exercise and eating a balanced diet. Regularly getting enough good quality sleep has incredible benefits: improved concentration, reduced risk of weight gain, better athletic performance, lower risk of heart disease and a stronger immune system are but a few. Most adults should get at least 7 hours of sleep a night, and some people may require as much as 9 hours of sleep each night.

But quantity of sleep is not the end of the story: quality matters too. Signs of poor sleep quality are waking frequently throughout the night and still not feeling rested even after sleeping 'enough’. If you aren't sleeping well or aren't sleeping enough, now is the time to make a change. Take a look at the resources we have put together and learn how you can improve your sleep quality. Sleeping well allows your body to rest and recover and ready itself for the new day. Consider sleep to be an essential pillar of your good health and wellbeing along with a good diet and plenty of exercise.
