Most people know they need a certain amount of sleep each night–usually 7.5 to 9 hours for a healthy adult–but what happens if you don’t get enough? Sleep is the way that your body and mind recharge themselves, and the benefits are major. Sleep helps you concentrate and makes it easier to form memories, so it keeps your mind running at its best. And your physical health depends on sleep too; getting enough sleep boosts your immune system and gives your body a chance to repair the cell damage that results from normal wear and tear during the day. To stay in the best shape physically and mentally, don’t skip your beauty sleep.
