Why you need more sleep

If you’re an average adult, chances are you need more sleep. Studies show that 60% of adults are not getting the 7-9 hours of nightly sleep their bodies need in order to function at their best.

Insufficient sleep doesn’t just manifest itself in the form of feeling tired – over time, it puts people at risk of increased health problems, weight gain, poor judgement and cognitive function and accidents.

The good news is – much like diet and exercise – if you start making it a priority, you can start to reap the health and functional benefits of getting more sleep! Obtaining sufficient sleep has been associated with better health, improved memory, increased sports performance, higher grades in school, lower body weight and decreased stress.
