The Importance of Sleep

Whoever said “you snooze you lose” was kidding himself.

Believe it or not, 1 in 3 American adults have trouble sleeping. Are you one of them? Getting enough uninterrupted sleep can make a world of difference for your mental and physical health.

You might not be getting enough sleep if you:

  • Have difficulty making decisions and solving problems
  • Feel like you could doze-off during daily activities, such as sitting in traffic or watching TV
  • Make mistakes and take longer than normal to complete tasks
  • Have trouble controlling your emotions
  • Have difficulty learning or remembering things

The importance of sleep

Not getting enough sleep can have negative impacts on our mental and physical health. Make sure you’re maintaining a healthy sleep schedule to enjoy these benefits of a good night’s sleep.

Sleep & mental health

  • A good night’s sleep can enhance your memory and problem-solving skills.
  • Maintaining a healthy sleep schedule helps you stay motivated, alert, and engaged.
  • A full night’s sleep can help your mood and even prevent feelings of depression.

Sleep & physical health

  • A solid night of sleep can help you maintain a healthy weight.
  • Sleep helps your immune system stay strong. The less you sleep, the harder it can be to fight common infections.
  • While you’re asleep, your body repairs important cells and tissues.
