Sleep plays a crucial role in your health and well-being. Often we lose sleep because our minds are preoccupied with going over the day's events or planning for future ones. If you have problems sleeping, try creating a journal. Write out your worries and fears about what is happening in your life. Allow your thoughts to flow out honestly to better prepare for a good night's rest. For sound sleep, no pillow is as soft as a clean conscience.
"Are calories burned during sleep?" is "Yes." The number of calories burned varies from person to person. The average person burns about 77 calories an hour while sleeping, but the actual number of calories burned by a specific individual depends on his or her Basal Metabolic Rate.

So keep regular sleep habits. Erratic sleep habits prevent the training of our “biological clocks.” Make every effort to go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends. The temptation to sleep in, or lounge around in bed on your day off can throw off your biological clock.
