It all comes down to trying to reclaim that much-needed “me time.”

A night of poor sleep can have lots of consequences on mood and functioning the following day. It’s harder to focus; you may be more irritable; pain can actually feel more intense. And chronically, not sleeping well can result in increased risk of a lot of health problems in the long-term.
Pretty much every cell in the body relies on sleep in some regard to function the way it should, explained Dr. Michael Awad, chief of sleep surgery at Northwestern Medicine. “Sleep is a pillar of our health.”
Sleep researchers have also identified a lot of important processes that happen in the brain and body during sleep that promote physical and mental health long term.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night. And in addition to getting enough hours of sleep, it’s important to get good quality sleep. That means you should be going to sleep and waking up at approximately the same time each night and morning, and sleeping soundly for the hours you’re in bed.
