Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep

A good night’s sleep makes you feel better! But there is more to it than
just a boost in your mood and a way to avoid under eye circles. Getting enough sleep is a key ingredient to a healthy lifestyle. It can affect your mind, heart, weight and more.

Sleep can lower your stress level. Which in turn can help control blood pressure. It’s also believed that sleep effects cholesterol levels, which plays a significant role in heart disease.
Sleep can help you maintain a healthy weight. Research shows that dieters who were well rested lost more fat—56% of their weight loss—than those who were sleep deprived, who lost more muscle mass.
Sleep can improve your memory. During sleep, your body may be resting, but your brain is busy processing your day. Deep sleep is a very important time for your brain to make memories and links, and getting more quality sleep will help you remember and process things better.
Sleep can curb inflammation. Increased stress hormones caused by lack of sleep raises the level of inflammation in your body. This creates a greater risk for heart-related conditions, as well as cancer, diabetes, and premature aging.
Sleep makes you more alert. A good night’s sleep makes you feel energized and alert the next day. Being engaged and active not only feels great but can also help you avoid car accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that being tired accounted for the highest number of fatal single-car crashes due to the driver’s performance—even more than alcohol!
These are just a few of the many benefits of getting the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep a night. So if you are on the lookout for ways to transform your life, there is one miracle drug within your control: Sleep!
