7+ hours of sleep/night
Although individual sleep needs vary, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that adults should sleep 7 or more hours per night on a regular basis to promote optimal health and productivity.
Healthy sleep reduces the risk of drowsy driving, workplace accidents, mental health problems such as depression, obesity, and medical conditions such as heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
Further, skimping on sleep sets your brain up to make bad decisions. It dulls activity in the brain’s frontal lobe, the locus of decision-making and impulse control.
Reach the goal for the designated activity during multiplier weeks and earn double points for that activity that week!
