Let’s face it, she’s suffering from some serious dark circles!
Sleep is one of the only activities every human being on Earth has in common. Whether you strive for only 4 hours a night, or 8, we all need it and it’s imperative to our health and well-being. Harvard Medical School states that sleep deprivation can alter our immune system and make us more susceptible to disease, cardiovascular problems, irritability, moodiness, and weight gain. In our houses, we dedicate entire rooms to our beds, and spend thousands of dollars on pillows, bedding and mattresses in order to assure we are as comfortable as comfortable as possible when we lay our heads down at night.
Tonight marks the annual Earth Hour, a national movement to save energy and send a clear message that we can work together to preserve our planet. Since we place such extreme importance on sleep in our own lives, we already understand how essential it is to give our Earth some much needed beauty sleep.
