7 Reasons Why Good Sleep Is More Important Than You Think

Sleep is just as important for good health as eating right, exercising, and staying hydrated. You need sleep and a lot of it, compared to what most people get. Yet, in the USA, about 70 percent of adults get less sleep than they need and one-third of adults get so little sleep as to cause health problems.

The lack of sleep prevalent in the USA affects women more than men due to the added physical and emotional labor they provide to their families. It's tough being a mom, and even tougher being a working mom!

 

Here's seven reasons why you need a good night's sleep:

 

1) You’ll Be a Healthier Weight 

A good night's sleep can even improve your metabolism, helping prevent weight gain that is common during and after menopause or during times of stress (hello COVID pandemic). Try to stop eating three to four hours before bed to encourage further fat burning.

2) You’ll Be Healthier Mentally and Physically 

Sleeping each night enough resets your body for functioning in the day. In addition, chemicals are released that can detox your liver, restore your circadian clock, and replenish levels of hormones and neurotransmitters. All of this affects your mind and body in amazing ways.

 

3) You’ll Boost Your Immunity 

People who sleep more get fewer illnesses and colds. This is because your body makes antibodies and cytokines which attack infection and inflammation in the body while you sleep. Without rest, you're more vulnerable to coronavirus and the flu.

4) You’ll Be More Pleasant to Be Around 

When you’re well-rested, you’re going to be a lot less moody and a lot more joyful. You’ll want to be around your friends and family more because you feel so good. You’ll be bright-eyed at work and seen as a go-getter and someone ready to be promoted.

 

5) You’ll Be Better at Decision Making

When you’re not tired, it’s easier for your mind to retrieve the important information to make your choices and decisions about everything. If you’re tired, it’s easy to miss important details, make mistakes, and burnout.

6) You’ll Improve Your Workout

Top-notch athletes don’t keep practicing until exhaustion 48 hours before any performance, they eat a good meal, and they sleep and rest instead. They’ve done all the work until that point, and then they get their body extra ready by resting. What does this mean for regular folks? You might be able to workout longer or hit more reps with weights, building important bone strength.

 

7) You’ll Improve Your Academic Performance

Still in school? While you might think staying up all night studying and cramming before a big test is the only way to ace it, you might be hurting your performance. The truth is, the better way is to study on a schedule that allows you to learn all you need 48 hours before your test and then spend that 48 hours resting and caring for yourself to boost testing performance.
