Why SLEEP is so important

Maintaining adequate amounts of quality sleep is essential to optimal health and well-being.

If you are feeling run-down, struggling to focus, or feeling irritable for no clear reason, you may want to look into your sleep patterns. In a fast-paced environment, many people forgo sleep and overextend themselves to catch up on work and other responsibilities.

But what if you could wake up every morning feeling refreshed, focused, and excited to move through your day?

While we are sleeping our internal organs rest and recover. Tissue repair, muscle growth, and protein synthesis primarily occur during sleep.

Hormones that help regulate appetite control, stress, growth, metabolism, and other bodily functions are released.

Moreover, memory consolidation occurs, allowing for the formation and storage of new memories, which is essential for learning new information.

We can literally sleep ourselves well:

The benefits of a quality sleep are an increase in energy which we need to make the best lifestyle choices such as working out, cooking, self-care, etc.

Sleep strengthened our immune system as well as it benefits our focus and creativity level.

A night with enough rest improves our mood and reduces anxiety, stress and mental exhaustion.

Not enough sleep can have negative effects like weight gain, an increased risk of chronic disease, accidents and injuries, a decline in cognitive function and increased anxiety.

Invest in rest

An adult (above 18years) should get at least 7 hours of sleep/ night.

If you have a hard time falling asleep, I would recommend to develop an evening routine. Don’t use electronics right before bed, light a candle, maybe have a skin care routine, try to calm down with meditation or reading and make your room dark for an undisturbed sleep.
