Everyone needs sleep—and enough of it. Sleep helps keep your mind and body healthy. Sure, sleep helps you feel better by boosting your mood & getting rid of under-eye circles, but getting adequate sleep is an essential part of staying healthy.

You can’t make the most of your day if you’re running on fumes. And returning home feeling exhausted and rundown kind of takes away from the reason you went on vacation to begin with.
