Essentials for a good rest

As life gets more hectic, it's much easier to go longer without sleep. This is becoming more and more common in everyone's daily life, however, rest is of the utmost importance, as sleep gives the body and brain time to recover from the stress of the day. After a good night's sleep, you perform better and are better able to make decisions. Sleep helps us feel more alert, optimistic and have a better relationship with people.

The most common question related to sleep is how many hours of sleep do you need? The answer to this question may vary, since people need different hours of sleep depending on their lifestyle, among others. Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night for good health and mental function. Some adults need up to 9 hours of sleep a night, for example.

To achieve a good rest, we recommend the following tips to implement in your day to day:

1. A good pillow
