Most of us fall asleep soon after laying our heads on our pillows. But many people have trouble going to sleep at a reasonable hour every night.
Although the National Sleep Foundation recommends getting seven to nine hours of sleep per night, most people sleep an average of only about six hours. In fact, more than 50 million Americans don’t get enough sleep.
Enjoying a good night’s sleep is very important for your health. It will help you be happier, keep your brain sharp, strengthen your immune system, keep your waistline trim, make your skin glow and lower your risk of high blood pressure and heart disease.
