Sleep is a vital biological need. It is crucial for good health, mood stability, and high performance. Despite this, sleep loss and sleep disorder are now global health epidemics. Sleep is a vital state within which your brain ‘cleans house’ and replenishes needed energy. Sleep of poor quality or quantity is linked to health and social problems now: and in a person’s future, can be linked to the development of dementia.
