Getting a night of quality sleep is essential for your optimal health and well-being. In fact, it is just as important as eating a healthy balanced diet, adequate hydration, and regular exercise. While sleep needs vary slightly from person to person, most adults require between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best.
Here are the top six reasons for getting a goodnight sleep daily:
Better memory and productivity 📈
Sleep is important for several aspects of brain function: Troubled sleep may affect memory processing and formation, performance including focus, decision-making, risk-taking behavior, and judgment. Lack of sleep also affects cognition by increasing stress hormones.
Lowers risk of weight gain 🏃
Poor sleep-defined as sleeping shorter than 7 hours nightly- links with a greater risk of weight gain and a higher body mass index. Numerous studies showed that sleep deprivation was associated with higher levels of the hunger hormone- ghrelin, salt retention, inflammatory markers, as well as fatigue. The researchers suggested maintaining a healthy sleep duration could help with weight loss and obesity prevention.
Reduces risk of heart disease 🫀
Poor sleep quality and short sleep may increase the risk of developing heart disease. Getting proper rest each night allows the body's blood pressure to regulate itself and promote better overall heart health.
Depression prevention 🛌🏼
The link between sleep and mental health has been studied for a long time. As per those studies, chronic sleep loss-insomnia is significantly linked with an increased risk of depression. The trouble with sleep may result in cognitive changes that lead to depression risk. Also, sleep disturbance may weaken emotional stability and alter neural processes, which may all lead to symptoms of depression.
Affects social life 🙋♀️
Insomnia lessens your ability to regulate emotions and interact socially. People who do not get adequate sleep are more likely to have a harder time controlling emotional outbursts and behaviors in front of others. Tiredness may also affect the ability to respond to humor, show empathy, and withdraw from social events.
Supports a healthy immune system 💪
Lack of sleep has been linked to weakening immune function. Science-backed data suggests that quality sleep may improve your body's antibody responses.
Sometimes, the pace of hectic modern life barely gives you time to stop and rest as the day turns into night. Perhaps, the following tips & tricks may keep your worries out of sight and help you close your eyes and go to sleep.
Drinking calming tea 🫖
Chamomile, Lavender, and Matcha are good examples of calming tea. For example, chamomile contains apigenin, an antioxidant that binds to specific receptors in the brain that may encourage sleepiness and reduce the chronic inability to sleep.
Lessen the screen time 👩💻
Research reveals to keep your phone away at least an hour before bed as it allows the brain to relax.
Studies have found that meditation can help reduce the heart rate, breathing, and cortisol level, which is the hormone linked with stress—practice mindfulness during the day, ideally for 20 minutes.
