HAPPY SLEEP HABITS
Make sleep your superpower! Scientists say children need at least nine hours of sleep every night to feel happy and stay healthy. Getting a good night’s sleep is important for happiness. If we have too little sleep, it can make us grumpy, easily upset and less able to concentrate and learn. It can also mean we want to eat sugary foods that aren’t good for us and make us less likely to want to exercise. 
Read the below top tips on setting a positive sleep routine.
