Why sleep should be a priority
Busy and lack of sleep, this is what we call modern life.
Exchanging 8 hours of enough of sleep just to finish daily tasks and errands. While juggling family, life, work, and relationship within 24 hours.
Average sleep time has declined to 20 percent during the last century. This is why a lack of sleep became an epidemic.
Here are a few signs when you’re sleep deprived;
- Often get sick
- Increase in irritability. Notice your tempers get short and you lack patience.
- Chronic fatigue, extreme tiredness, which lead to depression if not treated.
- Weight gain
- Easily get hungry or oftentimes hungry.
- Being forgetful
- Having a hard time to carry out decision and difficulty managing time management
Sleep deprivation can put our health at risk. And before it’s too late, enough and proper sleep should be taken into consideration.
So, what do we mean by a good sleep?
Dr. Blecenda Varona, a Lifestyle medicine Doctor, also one of the head faculty of FAME Leaders’ Academy prescribes adequate sleep for adults as having for 7-8 hours of sleep in total darkness. While babies need longer.
Good sleep allows your body to renew itself. Waste products are removed, repairs are in progress, enzymes are replenished, and energy is restored. It also aids in the healing of injuries, infection, and other assaults on your body, including stress and emotional traumas.
Good sleep strengthens your body’s immune system, helping protect you from diseases.
Good sleep can add years to your life. In a large population study of health habits, it was found that people who regularly slept seven to eight hours each night had lower death rates than those who averaged either less than seven hours or slept longer than nine hours.
