Benefits of Sleep
Majority of adults need 7 or more hours of sleep on a regular schedule each night.
Getting enough sleep isn’t only about total hours of sleep. It’s also important to get good-quality sleep on a regular schedule so you feel rested when you wake up.
Many things can make it harder for you to sleep, including:
- Health conditions, like heartburn or asthma
- Some medicines
If you're having trouble sleeping, try making changes to your routine to get the sleep you need.
- Change what you do during the day — e.g., get your physical activity in the morning instead of at night
- Create a comfortable sleep environment
- Set a bedtime routine —e.g., go to bed at the same time every night
