Your body and your brain need sleep! During sleep, the brain sorts through and stores information, replaces chemicals, and even solves problems while you sleep. Sleep helps with mental, physical, social and emotional development.

Sleep problems usually sort themselves out within about a month. But longer stretches of bad sleep can start to affect our lives. It can cause extreme tiredness and make usually manageable tasks harder.

An adult needs roughly 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

A lack of sleep can affect:

  • Your work performance
  • Your mood
  • Your concentration
  • Your immune system
  • Your memory
  • Your weight
