January 27th - The Importance of Sleep
Getting enough sleep is vital for many reasons. Two main reasons sleep is important, which impact our everyday life are mental health and physical health.
Mental health is severely impacted by lack of sleep. Therefore, it is important to get enough sleep so that your memory and problem-solving skills are at their best, especially while in school. Also, getting adequate sleep each night will allow you to stay alert, motivated, and engaged in your daily activities. In addition to these reasons, getting a full night’s sleep can enhance your mood and even lessen the feelings and symptoms of depression.
In regard to physical health, sleep is important as it will assist in maintaining a healthy body weight. Sleep also helps to improve and stabilize your immune system by providing energy to fight off infections. Lastly, while sleeping, your body is able to reset and repair important tissues and cells.
