sleep so important ????

Why is sleep so important ?

There are some good reasons for getting a good night’s sleep that tells us clearly the importance of sleep in our life. These reasons are –

Staying awake all night (being awake for more than 17 hours) can make you less responsive. Your reaction response will be comparable to that of an intoxicated person with a blood alcohol level of more than 0.5. This lack of mental and physical control decreases your ability to focus and perform throughout the day.

Incomplete or improper sleep results in incomplete hormonal cycle. Our body produces hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline during night. Due to lack of sleep, your body will not be able to produce enough of these hormones during night, as a result you may have to depend on stimulants to keep you going. These stimulants will further increase your sleep problems and this can result in a never ending tired cycle of sleep.

If you don’t get enough sleep during night, you will not get hungry in the morning. A good breakfast in the morning helps in detoxifying our body and stimulates our metabolism. Without a good breakfast you may feel low on energy and will indulge in poor eating patterns throughout the day.

A poor sleep results in excessive release of stress hormones such as cortisol. Stress hormones will keep you awake during night and that can further escalate your sleep problem or insomnia. These stress hormones also result in the restoration of fats in our body, causing health problems such as obesity or diabetes.

When you don’t have enough sleep your brain sends out messages for quick energy. You can get this quick energy from sugar consumption and as a result your sugar consumption will increase. High consumption of sugar will constantly elevate the insulin level in your body and you may end up with diabetes.

Physical repair takes place when we are sleeping, and this happens in the first half of the night – around 10 pm to 2 am. If you skip those vital first few hours and go to bed late at night, your muscle repair will not be complete. This leaves you physically weaker and a lot of body ailments like backache, neckache or headache.

The psychological repair of our mind takes place during the second half of the night between 2am to 6am. This repair is in the form of mental focus, your mood swings, and in maintaining a positive mindset. Staying early in the night and getting too early in the morning will result in improper psychological repair and may lead you to the dark road of depression and anxiety.
