Sleep is such a fundamental part of our existence as without proper sleep we simply don’t operate to our full potential. We daydream about it during work hours and crave it after a hard days work, yet when we need to actually get to sleep sometimes its difficult.  We all know that the perfect night’s sleep lasts for around 7 to 8 hours, though sometimes its just impossible to get that.
