5 Benefits of Quality Sleep




IT'S VITAL FOR EVERY PERSON'S OVERALL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING.


According to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), Sleep is essential for a person's health and well-being. Millions of people do not get enough sleep and many suffer from sleeping problems a few nights a week or more.


Numerous studies have found that insufficient sleep increases a person's risk of developing serious medical conditions, including obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Lack of adequate sleep over time has been associated with a shortened lifespan.



IT ENABLES THE BODY TO REPAIR, BE FIT AND READY FOR ANOTHER DAY


Quality Sleep is essential for the body to heal. Other benefits include:

  • Better performance intensity

  • More energy

  • Better coordination

  • Faster speed



SLEEP AND BETTER CALORIE REGULATION


There is evidence to suggest that getting quality sleep can help a person consume fewer calories during the day. When a person doesn't sleep long enough, it can interfere with their body's ability to regulate food intake correctly.


The relationship between lack of sleep and eating excessively is likely tied to hormonal functions in the body. Getting quality sleep promotes a healthy balance of hormones, including those that regulate appetite, digestion, and metabolism.



GOOD SLEEP CAN IMPROVE CONCENTRATION AND PRODUCTIVITY


Quality Sleep helps us to think clearly, remember information, make decisions, alertness and to be creative - all of which play an integral role in achieving optimal productivity.


What researchers concluded is that during sleep our brains recharge and that we need quality sleep to feed our high-level, innovative thinking and problem solving abilities.



SLEEP KEEPS EMOTIONS IN CHECK


Our Brain's ability to regulate emotions can be compromised if we don't get enough sleep. After a sleepless night, you may be more irritable, short-tempered, and vulnerable to stress. You snap at anything over the tiniest annoyance.


Once you sleep well, your mood often returns to normal. Studies have shown that even partial sleep deprivation has a significant effect on mood.
