Not getting enough sleep can severely impact your mental and physical health. According to a recent CDC study, a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep. Sleep is an important remedy to certain health challenges like stress and over eating. Well rested people have more control of their appetite; the longer you stay awake, the more likely you are to get hungry anyway. A decent 7-hour sleep is recommended for healthy living. People who sleep seven hours or less are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease. People who get six hours of sleep or less are at a greater risk of getting cancer and more likely to have a heart attack or stroke.
what happens when you don't get enough sleep:
-Sleep restores the brain at night after a long day.
-Too little sleep can lead to weight gain because of altered levels of the hormones that regulate satiety
-People who sleep seven hours or less are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease
-People who get six hours of sleep or less are at a greater risk of getting cancer and more likely to have a heart attack or stroke.
what happens when you get a good night of sleep:
-People who sleep less have higher rates of behavioral problems, especially behaviors like ADHD and attention deficit
-Good sleep improves concentration and productivity
-Sleeping enough improves athletic performance
-Sleep lowers stress. “Sleep can definitely reduce levels of stress, and with that people can have better control of their blood pressure," Dr. Jean says. "It’s also believed that sleep effects cholesterol levels, which plays a significant role in heart disease."
