9 Sleep Hacks Everyone Needs to Know

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), school-age children need at least 10 hours of sleep daily, teens need 9-10 hours, and adults need 7-8 hours lest we wish to welcome several potential and serious health risks. Unfortunately, the findings from a National Health Interview Survey showed that nearly 30% of adults reported an average of ≤6 hours of sleep per day while only 31% of high school students reported getting at least 8 hours of sleep on an average school night.

8 Reasons to Make Sleep A Priority

Sleep is one of the most powerful, effective, and efficient tools for maintaining our health, yet it is also the most underutilized, overlooked, and downright abused. “Hello, my name is Halley, and I’ve been appreciating sleep for sixteen days now.” I don’t say this to make light of recovery programs; in fact it’s quite the opposite! I, and others like me, have become addicted to the always-on, never-sleep mentality. We tear through life at breakneck speed, all in the name of getting things done. We hit the caffeine tap throughout the day to keep us going, and when we finally consider retiring to bed, we find ourselves tired...
