Sleep Is Vital For Your Health And Well-being
Your brain and body need sleep to recover. Adults usually sleep between six and nine hours a night.
You usually don't have to worry about getting too little sleep. It's common and not dangerous to occasionally have a night when you sleep poorly or not at all.
If it's a single night, you may feel tired and less creative the next day, but most people still manage to do everyday tasks.
Your sleeping routine usually returns to normal by itself.
But if you sleep too little night after night, you'll get more and more tired and weary over time.
Going without adequate sleep for longer periods will affect your everyday life and your health.
