2. Skimping on Sleep

American culture values those who burn the candles at both ends. We think of this as a sign of someone who is a “go-getter” or “on the road to success.”  The fact is sleep deprivation is a serious problem. Your body repairs itself, makes hormones, and restores itself while you sleep.

When you get regular sleep, you will not only have more energy during the day, you will be happier, and be better able to function at work. Most adults need 7 to 9 hours every night. If you have trouble falling asleep, turn off all your screens (TV, cell phones, tablets, computers, etc.)  at least 1 hour before bed.
