Healthy Sleep Habits: Wake Up to a Better You Tomorrow

Quality sleep renews your mind and body each night

How Getting Quality Sleep Renews Your Mind and Body Each Night

 

As the sun rises every day, the birds sing each morning, and cool dew refreshes the air; mother nature has a pattern of rest and renewal. All living things need rest — to begin fresh again the next day. 

Your body and mind experience a pattern of renewal when you enjoy restful sleep each night. 

Good quality sleep not only helps you feel ready to take on the day, but it’s also essential to your body’s processes. 

The renewing miracle of sleep can improve your life, health, and well-being.

 

Better Brain Function

Did you know that a lack of sleep affects your brain’s alertness the same way drinking alcohol does?

After 17 hours without sleep, your brain responds like it’s slightly impaired — similar to having a couple of beers or glasses of wine. So, if you want to be on your game or tackle a big work project, make sure you get your zzz’s.

 

 

 

 

Happy Heart

Your heart works hard for you each day, especially during waking hours and when you’re physically active. It needs downtime to rest and renew. Skimping on your sleep hours can put you at risk for high cholesterol, leading to stroke or heart attack. 

 

 

 

 

 

Strong Immune System

Without enough sleep, your body is prone to getting sick more often and having difficulty fighting off the bugs you’re exposed to. But consistent rest can bolster your natural immunity so you can fight infections before they get worse.

 

 

 

 

Optimal Organs

Your organs work together in a system and follow your body’s natural circadian rhythm. Studies show that the liver, your body’s largest internal organ that helps manage blood sugar and cholesterol, responds to changes in light and can actually detect wakefulness, which may disrupt your circadian rhythms and lead to health problems. 

 

 

 

Ideal Weight 

If you’re sleep-deprived, your body craves more calories, especially sweet & salty snacks. Insufficient sleep can also cause stress, negatively impacting your appetite and weight gain. Plus, restful sleep helps your physical performance, whether lifting weights at the gym, going on a long hike, or playing tennis with your friends.

 

 

 

Glowing Skin

Sleep may be the closest thing to the fountain of youth! Your skin’s metabolic rate and cell mitosis are at their peak at night. As a result, cellular turnover increases, collagen production goes up, and blood flow is boosted. So with a good night’s sleep, you can wake up to a brighter, glowing, clearer complexion.
