Sleep is vital for our everyday functioning. We need enough rest and sleep in order for us to stay healthy and fit. Just like food and water, air and sunshine, sleep is needed by our bodies to function optimally. Without enough sleep, our bodies become weak and prone to illnesses.

In today’s generation, many people ignore the importance of sleep. They feel that their work or whatever they do during the entire day is more important than having a good night’s sleep. Also, they think that they can restore the sleep they have lost by sleeping more during their rest days – which is actually not true.

A Good Night’s Sleep On An Ongoing Basis Is What You Need

It is true that having enough sleep is beneficial. However, many people do not grasp how much sleep they need and why is it so essential. As advised by many doctors, an 8-hour cycle of sleep is needed by adults. Lack of sleep or even too much sleep is not good for the health since it can cause various health complications.

But, why do you need to have enough sleep? Here are some benefits of having good sleep to your health:

  1. Healthy Heart. Getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night is needed to make your heart and blood vessels to function normally. Studies have shown that lack of sleep is associated with high blood pressure and cholesterol, thereby, increasing the risk of having heart diseases and stroke.
  2. Reduces Cancer Risks. Melatonin is a hormone responsible for making us feel sleepy. Decreased levels of this hormone increase the risk of having cancer since it is believed that melatonin suppresses the growth of tumors.
  3. Reduces Stress and Inflammation. When you have enough sleep, the production of stress hormones in your body is decreased, thereby, decreasing levels of inflammation.
  4. Body Repair. When you are sleeping, the cells in your body produce more protein. With more protein, the body is allowed to repair itself.
  5. Memory Booster. Sleep makes you feel alert and energized during the day. When you have enough sleep, your brain processes things better. And so proper sleep enhances your memory, cognition and mood.
  6. Weight Controller. If you want to lose weight or control your weight, you should have enough sleep since studies have shown that less than seven hours of sleep increases the risk of being overweight or obese.
