Are you getting enough sleep? A third of American adults are not. Adults need between seven and nine hours a night. But between work and family, that can be a tall order. But getting enough sleep is crucial to your health and well-being. Sleep helps you focus, boosts your memory, and gives you energy to get through the day. More rest for your brain means higher productivity. It can also help balance your moods and help you deal with stress. The busier you are, the more important sleep becomes.
