(HealthDay News) -- Beauty sleep is real. When you're rested, you usually look and feel better.

The National Sleep Foundation says good sleep:

  • Gives your body a chance to release growth hormone, which helps restore damage done during everyday activities.
  • Allows your body to send more fluids where needed.
  • Helps prevent release of stress hormones.
  • Helps lower your risk of depression.
