Most people have a love-hate relationship with sleep. On one hand, everyone needs it to feel recharged and ready to take on the day. On the other hand, it’s not so easy for many of us to hit the hay.
Sleeping habits can also vary. While experts recommend at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep, most folks – especially those who live in large cities – get 4 at most. This is often due to busy, erratic schedules.
Another culprit is smartphone devices. Sure, one minute you’re making sweeping declarations of sleeping early so you don’t wake up groggy the next morning. But soon you’ll find yourself still scrolling through an online shop, adding stuff to your wishlist at 3AM.
Depending on your needs and lifestyle, there are people who need more sleep than others. Older individuals seem to need less, and are typically light sleepers. What matters is that you get your required shuteye everyday.
Not sleeping leads to a whole host of problems that include fatigue, mood swings, and chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
In case you need something relatable to get you into bed in a better mood, here are some funny sleep memes just for you.
