Getting enough of quality sleep is vital for our wellbeing and helps us cope with the challenges of daily life1. Sleeping well is especially important now, as the days get shorter, and as we continue to fight the global pandemic that has upset so many of our daily routines and increased stress in our lives. Prioritizing sleep is important, so both the body and mind have the chance to recover from daily stress. The benefits of a good night’s sleep for our well-being are well known and include reduced sadness, anxiety, and stress2.  Regular sleep that includes 7-9 hours of restorative sleep every night is the basis for a good sleep hygiene3. This has been defined as the length of sleep that is adequate for most adults. Children and teenagers, who are still maturing, need more sleep3.
