The Benefits of Sleep & How to get More!
Sleep is extremely important for the body. Even though you shut off conscious thought and literally do nothing during your sleep hours your body is hard at work repairing and restoring itself back to its natural balance (homeostasis). These hours are crucial for the body to re-synthesize protein, restore the body's glycogen, cycle and balance hormones and any other processes that are necessary to sustain life. With Inadequate sleep, especially repeated bouts of less than 6 hours/day, the body can experience many negative impacts.
Use the tips above to help get a better sleep!
