Sleep, something we know is oh so important, but in today's world it seems to be more elusive than ever! The demand of everyday life and adulting seems to be continually growing. But, do you know how important sleep actually is?!
✨Sleep is a time when the body can focus on repairing and rejuvenating itself
✨Sleep is vital for cognitive function (helps the brain process and organize information gathered when you're awake)
✨Adequate sleep is crucial for emotional stability and mental health
✨Lack of sleep is associated with a range of physical health problems
✨Sleep is important for a strong and resilient immune system
AND SO MUCH MORE!
It is important to recognize that the quantity and quality of sleep needed can vary among individuals and across different stages of life. Like right now, I’m in the trenches of having a little guy who needs to eat overnight, so I have to adjust as needed! I try to grab a nap during the day if I can or ask for help if I’m feeling rundown.
While adults typically require 7-9 hours of sleep per night, infants, children, teenagers, and older adults may need different amounts.
Chronic sleep deprivation, which occurs when an individual consistently gets less sleep than their body needs, can have detrimental effects on health and well-being. That’s why it’s so important to prioritize sleep! I know we can get caught up in binge watching a tv show or reading one more chapter of a book, but sleep plays a HUGE role in our overall health.
Establishing healthy sleep habits and prioritizing sleep as an essential part of one's daily routine can lead to improved physical and mental health, increased productivity, and a better overall quality of life.
