Sleep helps in restoring two particular chemicals in our bodies: glycogen and adenosine. The function of glycogen is to store energy in brain and it decreases while we are awake. They are restored during sleep. Adenosine accumulates while we are awake and prompt us to feel sleepy at the end of the day.
We need sleep to keep our energy level high, to feel less cranky and to function at our best.

Self-care by definition means taking the time to do things that help you live well and improve both your physical health and mental health.
When you do any self-care activity it boosts your mood.
