Sleep is essential to both your physical health and mental health. It helps you feel more energetic and can help you feel more optimistic. It is just as important to your health as diet and exercise. During periods of rest, your body repairs and heals itself. With a good night of healthy sleep, you will be refreshed and ready to take on the day!

  • Lower your risk for serious health problems, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease

  • Maximize immunity from vaccines
