Why the Quality and Quantity of Your Sleep Matters

Woman sleeping in bedHaving a great day has to begin with getting a good night’s sleep. It’s no surprise, then, that your health is tied to the quality of your sleep and the number of hours you get, in turn affecting every aspect of your life.

With proper sleep, you can stay well, reach peak performance and have balanced mental and emotional function. Approximately a third of your life is spent sleeping. Your body and brain are far from turned off during these hours.

Sleep is the busiest and most crucial biochemical activity in your day. Though you’re getting a break from your hectic routines, the energy you usually expend goes towards detoxification of the kidneys, liver and digestive system and your immune system’s growth, healing and repair.

Check in With How You Feel Each Morning

You should wake feeling rejuvenated with repairs to damaged tissues made, growth initiated and your memory having sorted and stored what you have learned, experienced and felt each day.

Without enough sleep, you’ll suffer impactful consequences:

  • A higher risk of diabetes, obesity, cancer and weakened immunity, which can lead to sleep and airway problems
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Decreased learning
  • Fatigue
  • Impaired memory
  • Irritability
  • Poor decision-making
  • Reduced productivity and concentration
  • Greater stress

Do You Suffer From Sleep Problems?

Few people get the eight uninterrupted hours of sleep that they need each night. If you have difficulty falling asleep, don’t wake feeling refreshed, snore or stop breathing, wake with pain, stiffness or dry mouth, have restless sleep or sleep apnoea, there are likely reasons for it.

Others report morning hoarseness, requiring naps, bed-wetting, night terrors, sleepwalking or talking in sleep, night sweats, messy sheets upon waking, drooling on your pillow, dark bags under the eyes and a history of disease such as high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
