There are never enough hours in the day to get things done. And sometimes we cut back on our sleep time in order to cram everything in. Or our sleep is affected because we have so much on our mind. Sleep is extremely important to our body because it gives us the necessary time to restore our system and can play a key role in our brain function and overall health. Adults are supposed to get about 7-9 hours of sleep each night. But it is not just the amount of sleep we get but the quality that we get that is important as well.

To learn more about how you can get quality sleep, join us next Tuesday, June 21st at 10:00 a.m. at the North Granville Senior Center in Stovall for our in-person workshop or at 12:00 p.m. for our virtual workshop about “Getting A Good Night Sleep”. We will discuss how your routine can affect your good night’s sleep, why sleep is so important to your health, and how to develop good sleeping habits. Register online.
