With today’s fast paced society, busy schedules, and hectic work hours, many find it hard to get enough sleep. Sleep is extremely important to our body. Without sleep, simple daily functions and performance at work, could and most likely will be negatively affected. So how can we ensure that we get enough sleep?
Scientists still have not found the true importance of sleeping, however they believe that it is necessary to sleep because it is a time when our bodies can restore itself and regain energy that is lost during the day. While we sleep, our bodies can repair muscle tissue, release hormones important for growth and development, and restore mental health. Dreaming is contrary to this belief since while we dream our brains are very active. Experts suggest that dreaming is a “clearing out process” or a way to organize and remember thoughts we had and things we learned throughout the day.
When you don’t have enough sleep you start to feel moody and drowsy which can affect the quality of your performance at work or school! Did you know that if your body is deprived 3-5 days of sleep you would start to hallucinate and you would not be able to perform functions easily? This is why it is essential to get enough sleep. Most people need about 8 hours of sleep, kids usually need more.
Now-a-days, with busy schedules it is hard to regularly get enough sleep. Here are some tips you can try to help ensure you have enough good quality sleep:
Set up a regular bedtime... no cheating, stick to that time every night!
Write about anything you haven’t done yet that you need to do tomorrow, you will have trouble sleeping with all those thoughts in your head.
Read a dull book or listen to soothing music before you fall asleep.
Don’t take (too many) naps during the day.
