Sound sleep is important to repair body cells, remove toxins, and consolidate memories.

It is evident that sleep deprivation has a major negative impact on our health.

Poor sleep affects your psychological well being and emotional intelligence.

It also increases the risk of developing a few health issues like obesity, heart diseases, and diabetes. 

Just like our normal schedule of eating and exercising, it is important to have a proper sleep routine.

For many, seven to nine hours of sleep is sufficient.

Going to sleep and waking up at a similar time every day can help in maintaining a sense of normality.

It also helps you to follow through with your plans. 

These days people are more into listening to the news, to stay updated about the Coronavirus pandemic, but to have proper sleep you must avoid negative news before you go to your bed.

Also, it will reduce your exposure to screens, as the effect of the screen’s light impacts your eye retina and disturns your sleep pattern.
