See Major Benefits Of Sleep

Having enough sleep boosts brain power, improves weight management, and reduces stress and inflammation.

1**
It helps You Maintain a Healthy Weight
Research suggests that people who sleep less are more likely to be overweight or obese.

Poor sleep appears to disrupt the balance of ghrelin and leptin.

If you want to lose or maintain weight, don’t forget that good sleep is part of the equation.

2**
It Improves Your Balance
Sleep helps you maintain your physical abilities. Studies show sleep deprivation leads to short-term balance problems.That’s called postural instability

3**
It Increases Your Energy and Alertness
A good night’s sleep makes you feel energized and alert. This helps you focus and get things done.

It’s easier to exercise when you’re energetic and alert. So that’s an indirect benefit of getting enough sleep.

Being engaged and active throughout your day feels good. And being more active all day makes another good night’s sleep more likely.

4**
It decreases Inflammation
Sleep regulates your immune system. When you don’t get enough, irregular immune system activity can cause inflammation.

You may not notice excess inflammation. But it can have an effect on your body.

Chronic inflammation damages structures and increases your risk of many health conditions. A few examples include:

Ulcers
Dementia
Heart disease

5**
It repairs Your Tissues
While you sleep, your body works hard to repair damage. The damage can be from stress, ultraviolet rays, and other harmful things you’re exposed to.

Your cells produce certain proteins while you sleep. They form the building blocks of cells. That lets cells repair the day’s damage and keep you healthy.
