Sleep is critical for our mental health. When we don’t get enough, that can cause anxiety and a host of other health problems. During these dark months when we get just a bit more than 8 hours of sunlight, those precious hours of downtime can get more easily disrupted.

Sleep expert Michael V. Vitiello explains what we can do to maintain sleep habits all year long.
