Getting Enough Sleep?

“Get a good night’s sleep. When you don’t get enough sleep night after night, your body releases the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol not only increases your appetite, it also slows down your metabolism. Adults need at least eight hours of good restful sleep every night. If you believe sleep is a waste of time, think again. People who do not get enough sleep raise their risks of all sorts of diseases and accidents.”
