You can get better sleep for the rest of your life when you realize that adequate sleep is one of life's essentials. Most active people require approximately eight hours of sleep out of every twenty four hours. Of course, this varies with individuals but as a general guide to having a good, healthy life you should make it a point to be aware of your basic need to get enough sleep every day. If you find yourself working long hours each week and then you spend time doing lots of partying on weekends you may be depriving your body of the sleep it needs to maintain good health.
You may ask what happens when I don't get enough sleep? When you deprive your brain of enough sleep you become sleep-deprived. Here are some things that could happen without your even realizing they are happening.

(2) You could get drowsey while working or driving.
(3) You may find yourself reading and re-reading the same page over and over again without understandng what it is that you are reading.
