When people don't get enough sleep, their reaction times get slower as their blood pressure rises, the risk of obesity and diabetes increases and they eat more. On the other hand, having a good night's rest decreases stress, helps with weight loss, improves memory, prevents depression, promotes quicker healing and reduces inflammation. The infographic offers eight tips for getting better sleep, including not sleeping with electronics in your room and winding down without screens in general. Writing in a journal can also help clear your mind.
