Herbal Remedies for Sleep
Getting the required amount of sleep can be tough in today’s bustling society where there is never enough time in the day. We schedule in work, appointments, dinner, social events, and errands. What we forget to schedule in is sleep. Our bodies need at least six to eight hours of sleep. Many of us forget to add this time to our schedules and stay up way past our bed times. This opens the door to fatigue and can be an invitation to illness.
