Surprising Health Benefits of Sleep

Surprising Health Benefits of Sleep

I am sure that sometimes you wake up and feel you have so much energy that you can change the world. lol Or with such lack of energy that you simply cannot face another day. That might have  been influenced by getting enough sleep or not. Then I read an article about all the surprising health benefits of having a good nights rest. Have a look at the following advantages.

1. Improve memory - You’ll perform better after sleeping.
2. Live longer? - Sleep also affects quality of life.
3. Curb inflammation - people who get less sleep— (six or fewer hours a night) —have higher blood levels of inflammatory proteins than those who get more.
4. Spur creativity - Get a good night’s sleep before getting out the easel and paintbrushes or the pen and paper.
5. Be a winner - If you’re an athlete, there may be one simple way to improve your performance: sleep.
6. Improve your grades - In another study, college students who didn’t get enough sleep had worse grades than those who did.
7. Sharpen attention - A lack of sleep can result in ADHD-like symptoms in kids
8. Have a healthy weight - If you are thinking about going on a diet, you might want to plan an earlier bedtime too.
9. Lower stress - Sleep can definitely reduce levels of stress, and with that people can have better control of their blood pressure.
10. Avoid accidents - Sleeplessness affects reaction time and decision making.
11. Steer clear of depression - A lack of sleep can contribute to depression.
It is wonderful to know that there are health benefits without having to medicate. And I thought that my parents chased me early to bed for their health. lol
