Did you know…?
- Sleep is just as important as diet and exercise for a healthy lifestyle.
- Inadequate sleep leads to poor mood and impaired performance.
- Poor sleep leads to weight gain, obesity, and heart disease.
- According to ParticipACTION, many kids are too tired to get enough physical activity during the day, and not active enough to be tired at night – it’s a vicious cycle. For optimal health, children and youth need to sweat, step, sleep and sit the right amounts.
