Sleep is a vital component of our health and wellbeing, it’s the time in which our body repairs itself. When the stresses of modern life take over, our sleep tends to suffer. We find ourselves getting to bed a few hours later than you had planned and waking up early in the morning with a million and one things going through our mind.
The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant, or it can harm us over time. Studies also show that sleep deficiency alters activity in some parts of the brain. If you are sleep deficient, you may have trouble making decisions, solving problems, controlling your emotions and behavior, and coping with change. Furthermore, ongoing sleep deficiency can also raise the risk of some chronic health problems.
However, we can take steps to improve our sleep habits. We should make sure that we allow ourself enough time to sleep. Additionally, maintaining a consistent sleep routine, not eating a few hours before sleep and stop using electronic devices one hour before sleep can all help. We have noticed that sleep is often the first thing we squeeze out of our schedules when busy, but making time to sleep will help us protect our health and well-being now and in the future.
