Home Health Hint: Sleep

The Science of Sleep

Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our video blog – every week we will be posting a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we discuss sleep and its importance to your health.

Just like in previous weeks, when we talked about the importance of hydration and of proper nutrition with regards to protein, your body needs an adequate amount of sleep to function properly. Rest allows your body to heal itself, restore chemical balances, and helps with memory retention. But what happens when you do not get enough? And how can you set yourself up for satisfying slumber? Check out the video for the answers to those questions – thanks for watching!
