A Good Night's Sleep

So… you want a good nights sleep? I am seeing a lot of people complaining about not getting enough sleep or not waking up rested on many social media posts.   This is bad because it affects our overall mood/ mental health and it can even result in physical illness.  What you may not realize about an ongoing lack of sleep is it can lead to things like depression and or anxiety; it can wreak havoc on our relationships (learned by personal experience) and give us a poor work ethic at our jobs.

I cannot really say how much sleep we need as some people need more, some people need less but… the average adult requires eight to nine hours of sleep a day.

After seeing all the social media posts and… not having enough sleep my self I booked an appointment with a psychologist through my local healthcare system.  Here is some guidelines for good sleep hygiene:
