Sleep is essential for a person's health and well-being.

The amount and quality of sleep can influence eating habits, mood, memory, internal organs and more – including heart and brain health. Getting enough sleep can lower your risk of chronic disease and type 2 diabetes, strengthen your immune system, and improve your mood and increase energy; however, short sleep (less than 7 hours) and poor-quality sleep are associated with high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and atherosclerosis.
