The human body needs energy to carry out its daily activities. As science rightly puts it, energy is the quantitative property that must be transferred to an object in order to perform work on, or to heat, the object. Therefore, we all need energy, in order to efficiently complete our daily tasks. Most often we find ourselves very tired at the early hours of the day and we end up being inefficient on our jobs.

Sleep: The amount of sleep we get at night is very important for our health. It is at this time that the heart and blood vessels are being healed and restored. Sleep deficiency can lead to blood pressure, an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Nevertheless, it is advisable to sleep at least seven to eight hours at night and in the morning we will be energised for the rest of the day.
