Well, if you haven't started on your New Year's Resolutions yet, I have a new one to add to your list: reduce stress by getting more sleep! A new survey by Huffington Post revealed that lack of sleep was the number-one cause of stress among survey participants, and getting more sleep - even a short nap - helped alleviate that stress.
But how much sleep do you really need? Sleeping too much can cause almost as many problems as too little, and is a major sign of depression. Check out this article from The National Sleep Foundation to help you gauge how much is beneficial for you - you might be surprised to find you should be aiming for more hours per night. I know I was! I've decided that from now on, I'm going to set an alarm for 9:00 pm to remind me to start getting ready for bed. That might be a good trick for you to use as well!
