Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, Outpost Estates is a Los Angeles neighborhood bordered by Mulholland Dr., Franklin Canyon, Runyon Canyon Park, and Cahuenga Boulevard.

In 1853, Don Tomas Urquidez built a three-room adobe house on the site where the neighborhood is now located.

This week (March 8-14), marks the National Sleep Foundation’s annual Sleep Awareness Week, which aims to celebrate and promote healthy sleep practices. Considering that 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. don’t get adequate nightly sleep, it’s more critical than ever that we do what we can to get the sleep we need to feel strong and healthy.

Studies suggest that sleep plays a critical role in memory and learning, and a lack of sleep can have a negative impact on our mood, judgment, and motivation. And not only does sleep deprivation affect the way we think and feel,
