This weekend we turn our clocks back an hour. It's one of my favorite days of the year because I get to get an extra hour of sleep. Getting enough sleep is one-of-the-essentials to our mental health. According to a new study out of the University-of-Southern-Florida, all it takes is three consecutive nights of getting less than six to eight hours of sleep to experience a “great deterioration” in both mental and physical wellbeing.
Make sure you prioritize mental health by getting the sleep your body needs to do well. When you burn the candle at both ends you wind up lacking the bandwidth to be your best.
