Sleep is like food for your brain.

Getting enough sleep is important for your physical and mental wellbeing.

Sleep lets your mind recharge and process information. It’s the only part of the day that your body gets to rest and repair.

Sleep can help you feel better, think more clearly, and concentrate better. It gives you the energy to complete tasks and can make you more alert.

Without enough sleep you may have problems with thinking, concentrating, memory, reaction times, and mood.
