Believe it or not but sleeping is as important as breathing and eating!
Try not sleeping for some time; you might win, but up to a certain extent only; your body is going to push you to faint eventually and force you to sleep. After all, your body gets to work by itself with no external interference when you sleep; it renews you for the next day and rejuvenates your mind, body, and soul.
In fact, everyone’s quota needed for sleep varies depending on their physical well-being, lifestyle and the environment around them. If you think it’s too far-fetched, take a look at some of the points mentioned below:
Sleeping (for an appropriate time) has multiple health benefits. A good night’s rest not only lets you welcome the day with open arms and gears you up for the day ahead; it also does a lot of good for your health. Read on to know why an adequate sleep is important for you.
Sleep can play with your hunger levels; insufficient sleep gives you the feeling of being hungry and makes you hog on food, especially junk food that your erratic hormones crave after being sleep deprived. Hence, a sleep deficit can lead to a quick and unusual weight gain, which has actually been proven to be true, scientifically.
On the contrary, proper sleep can help you lose that extra weight when coupled with a healthy fitness routine. The above is true for all age groups.
Your body undergoes a total repair and revitalising function while you are sleeping so that when you wake up after a good night’s sleep, you are refreshed. Recuperation and a repair of your heart, veins, kidney, tissues, and various body organs also happen at night when sleeping. Even your skin changes its colour slightly while sleeping, have you ever noticed?
