5 Important Ways Good Sleep Increases Your Joy
Think about the last time you didn’t sleep well. (It could have been last night!)
How did you feel the next day?
Your mood (whether good or bad) can be influenced by how much sleep you get the night before.
Sleep deprivation and unhealthy sleep patterns are a growing epidemic, and they can have serious consequences on your health and happiness.
If you want to experience more joy in your life, the answer may lie in getting more Zzzz’s.
You may be surprised how good sleep increases your joy factor!
Feel More Positive After a Good Sleep
If you want a boost of positivity in your life, sleep is the answer.
When you sleep, your brain processes things like negative memories or feelings, so they stop having power over you when awake. So if you suffer from negative thinking, sleep can help soften the edges of negativity and help you better deal with bumps in the road.
Sleep Relieves Stress and Boosts Mood
When you’re tired and groggy, your body releases cortisol. Unfortunately, this causes a decrease in your serotonin levels — a key hormone responsible for stabilizing your mood and sense of wellbeing.
Therefore, poor or interrupted sleep can increase anxiety and depression due to a serotonin dip.
But when you get enough sleep, your cortisol levels decrease, naturally letting your serotonin levels increase. This hormonal shift helps reduce stress in your cells and also improves your mood.
Getting healthy sleep is one way you can lower your stress in life. And when you’re feeling peaceful and less stressed, it’s much easier to be happier and more positive.
Sleep Helps You Be More Productive
Sleep deprivation makes it difficult for your brain to perform at its peak and make good decisions.
But when you get enough sleep each night, your brain can process information more quickly, which makes you feel refreshed the next day. Plus, there are no excuses for not getting the work done with a good night’s kip behind us.
So if you want to be more productive, don’t skimp out on your sleep. Get consistent, high-quality sleep to have your most efficient, productive days.
Sleep Makes You More Creative
Did you know that sleep can help you cultivate your creativity?
When we spend time in deep sleep, our brain processes information and experiences from the day. This nightly cleaning routine helps us “scrub” our brains and allows room for new ideas.
So if you’re trying to come up with a brilliant idea for your business or need some inspiration at work, get some extra shut-eye.
Healthy Sleep Supports Good Relationships
When you’re tired and weary, your relationships take a hit. Your family or friends may not appreciate your foul mood or irritability, and this friction can cause stress.
But when you get enough rest each night, you can increase empathy and improve communication within relationships.
Remember that quality sleep helps you feel happier, more optimistic, creative, productive, and improves your communication skills.
So, if you’re looking for a relationship boost, try getting some extra shut-eye instead of burning the midnight oil.
