Sleep restores our energy, helps us deal with stress, boosts our immune system and provides other health benefits as well. Aim for about eight hours of sleep a night. To rest better, get exercise during the day, and set up a relaxing evening routine. A warm bath, soft music and gentle stretches calm your body and mind before bed.
