Renew for You: Sleep better for a healthier brain

Getting enough shut-eye is good for your mind. Here’s why — and how to nod off, fast

You’ve got a life to lead with a lot to accomplish. Skimping on sleep may seem like a worthwhile trade-off. But when you don’t get enough shut-eye, your brain health can suffer. What’s more, if you struggle to fall asleep when you want to, taking a sleep aid can backfire, causing unwanted side effects like confusion, memory problems and more. That’s where yoga can come in. Learn three simple poses that can help you relax and get the rest you need. Renew by UnitedHealthcare® has resources that can help UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage members manage stress, protect brain health and sleep better, too. Sign in to and go to Health & Wellness to get started.
