Sleep 101

The quality of the sleep we get each night can affect our overall wellbeing.

If we don’t get enough sleep that is of an optimal quality, we can be moody, irritable, drowsy, or lacking in concentration the next day. If a poor sleep pattern becomes a habit, it can result in long-term negative health outcomes such as stress, depression, increased tension, and mood swings.

Good quality sleep, on the other hand, is beneficial to physical and academic performance, mental health, weight management, and stress reduction.

Watch this video to understand how and why we sleep, why sleep consistency is important, and how good quality sleep can support daytime performance.
