Abstract

“Now I lay me down to sleep” … this is a closing thought said by many children as they get into their beds and begin their journey to sleep. Sleep…it is a daily ritual or routine that humans practice throughout time. Sleep is important for all ages—it is what revitalizes and rejuvenates individuals; yet, sleep is a mystery. Why do we sleep? Why is it important? The scientific community continues to research these questions. This article focuses on the topic of sleep hygiene including describing sleep hygiene, providing the evidence-based literature, and highlighting how sleep remains important in family life and wellness.
