Weekly Challenge - Get 7 to 9 Hours of Sleep

For the upcoming weekly challenge we are challenging the participants to "get 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night." What difference could an extra hour of sleep make in your life? Maybe quite a lot, experts say. Studies show that the gap between getting just enough sleep and getting too little sleep may affect your health, your mood, and your weight. A good night's sleep can lower blood pressure and elevated levels of stress hormones, which are a natural results of today's fast paced lifestyle.
