Are you a morning person or do you struggle every single morning to pull yourself out of the cloud that you call bed?
Everyone would rather catch a few extra hours in bed after a long day, trust us, but getting a good night's sleep can have so many benefits. Getting into bed earlier every night and treating yourself to a good quality can help you massively in the long run. Don't believe us? See below for yourself!
Better health: more sleep may not guarantee immunity from disease, however studies have found a correlation between a lack of sleep and serious health risks. What's more, tired eyes may miss the little things that might have made your day that little bit brighter.
Improve memory: your mind is busier than you think whilst sleeping, practicing and strengthening skills from your time awake, which will improve the day after your sleep.
Stress relief: sleeping is meant to be a process of complete relaxation for the mind and body. However, for some of us our daily routines and working life can really take its toll. Exploring relaxation techniques may result in a longer and more comfortable night's sleep. Our bodies react to less sleep by becoming tense and put on high alert with a risk of high blood pressure and ultimately fatal health risks.
Smiles all round: more sleep creates a happier you, with more energy and patience for the people surrounding you and for the day ahead.
Healthy heart: we all know how it feels to love somebody or to be loved. However, try to love yourself… by sleeping a little longer. This will help to maintain a healthy heart whilst reducing your stroke risk.
Improve your concentration: struggling to focus on a task in work or at home? Do you find yourself gazing out the window when you should be concentrating? If this is a regular occurrence, you may want to try having a few extra hours' sleep. For your brain to function well, sleep is vital!
