March 2021 – Sleep Basics

Do you feel exhausted, but then climb into bed and lie awake? Or wake up multiple times throughout the night? Perhaps you sleep all night but then feel tired all day? Taking too long to fall asleep, waking up frequently or feeling sleepiness during the daytime are sure signs that you are experiencing poor sleep.

Whether this is a recent occurrence or has been happening for a while, there are some simple, but highly effective ways you can improve your sleep. Healthy sleep can help you improve your mental health, sharpen your memory and focus and promote personal safety. While you rest, your body is completing a number of vital tasks to help you function at your best.
