The Power of Sleep...7 benefits of a good night's sleep!
A good night's sleep is vital to our physical and emotional wellbeing. Getting proper rest on a regular basis isn't just a good idea...it's essential.
1- Sleep keeps your heart healthy
Studies show that your heart will be healthier if you score 7-9 hour of sleep each night.
2- Sleep reduces stress
In order to stay chilled out, sleep helps reduce and manage elevated stress hormones...especially in today's fast-paced world, sleep can help dramatically.
3- Sleep reduces inflammation and helps the body repair itself
Sleep is a time to relax, but it's also a time in which your body is busy healing itself and working hard to be healthy.
4- Sleep improves your memory
When you sleep, your brain is busy organizing and storing memories which is why you may feel sharper after some good ZZZZZZ's. Getting more quality sleep will help you remember and process things more effectively!
5-Napping makes you smarter
Along with a great night's sleep, grabbing a quick nap in the daytime can contribute to making your brain more effective and productive. You will likely feel sharper, more attentive and focused throughout the day.
6- Sleep may make you happier and puts you in a better mood
The better you sleep, the better your ability to stay calm and rational. And less likely that you'll flip out, lose your temper or snap at a loved one.
7- You may very well have some fantastic dreams!
Research shows that dreams help us process emotions, consolidate memories, solve problems and maybe even regulate mood.
