Top 5 Reasons Sleep is Important to Your Health

Posted by
  1. Heart Health
    Sleep is directly compatible with a healthy heart. Lack of sleep can increase stress hormones in the body. This leads to an overworked heart sometimes resulting in high blood pressure or even heart attacks.
  2. Keeps You Thin
    It’s true, sleeping well regularly can keep the pounds off. Sleeplessness increases appetite and depresses the feeling of being full. Lack of sleep can also make it difficult to say no to junk food.
  3. Mood Boost
    Not sleeping enough can leave you feeling stressed or frustrated. Long term effects on mood include depression, lower self-esteem, and increased anxiety.
  4. Increased Productivity & Focus
    Getting a good night’s sleep increases short-term memory in adults. Adequate sleep is directly correlated to an improved skill set as well as higher test scores and improved attendance. It makes sense, if sleeping less lowers your immune system and makes you irritable, it may be more difficult to focus and be productive.
  5. Improves Relationships
    Not getting enough sleep lowers libido. But aside from that, lack of sleep makes you more emotional and amplifies negative emotions making it harder to maintain positive relationships.
