The Benefits of Sleep

For years, I tried to avoid sleep because I wanted to get as much work done as I could. I felt like sleep needed to take a back seat to the possibility of achieving my goals and dreams.

Little did I know, I was wrong. Not only was I wrong, but I was wrong.

Sleep is a major component in a successful and healthy life.

Sleep is a natural bodily function just as breathing, eating, and drinking. What you may not realize is how beneficial sleep is for you and why. Did you know you will spend a third of your life sleeping?

Everyone recognizes the importance of sleep during their life. You may find this out, when you feel tired and have no energy because you missed a good night’s rest. In addition, your moods and general well-being change.

Many hours of research have gone into understanding the benefits of sleep.

Sleep has been shown to help improve immune function, your metabolism, memory, and your ability to learn. A good night’s rest can have lasting benefits and allow your body to run and perform at optimal levels.

As mentioned earlier, sleep has been shown to help your learning and memory function. There are two major benefits connected with learning and memory function with your ability to sleep.

The first one is quite simple. A person who is deprived of sleep just cannot focus properly, so they will not learn effectively.

The second benefit is after learning something new, your memory merges this information while sleeping. So, if you study before going to bed is a good thing for your memory and your learning skills.

A big bonus of getting adequate sleep is living longer.

Research shows that people who slept under 5 hours per night were more likely to die early. However, this does not mean you want to oversleep either, because it also connects too much sleep with a shorter life span.

Remember that the quality of your sleep can also affect your health.

People who sleep less than 6 hours a day often suffer with health issues such as arthritis, diabetes, suffering from a stroke and heart disease.

Lack of sleep has been linked to individuals having more inflammatory protein levels in their blood. When these issues are treated, and more sleep is accomplished, it has shown the protein levels to decline.

Did you know your creativity levels, athleticism, and school grades can all improve by sleeping more?

It was discovered that many children with ADHD were sleep deprived. It has been recommended that young children get more than 8 hours of sleep per night.

If you are trying to lose weight, then you should know that sleep has benefits that might assist you in shedding those extra pounds.

Dieters who sleep more find that they can lose weight quickly. This is because your metabolism and sleep are controlled by the same areas of your brain. If losing weight is your goal, then try to get a good night’s rest every night.

As you can see from the few points we shared, sleep really has a major impact on your life.

How to Have an Excellent Day

How to Have an Excellent Day

All of us want to have an excellent day every day. However, having an excellent day every day is not always possible. There are many factors we do not control, but we control our responses to them.

What that means for you and I is we need to be ready to approach each day with a clear mind. Having a clear mind enables you to deal with a variety of situations.

Below are four steps you can take to have an excellent day.

Wake Up 15 Minutes Earlier Than Normal – The start of your day sets the tone for the whole day. Begin your day by waking up 15 minutes earlier than normal. When you wake up earlier, you do not feel as rushed as a normal day. Typically, 15 minutes will not leave you as groggy as you may think.

As a bonus to getting up early, take a few minutes and write five positive things you will accomplish during the day. Setting your goals, in a positive manner, will help you create a vision of how you will accomplish your day.

No Social Media Before Noon – One of the best things you can do is to set the tone for your day at the beginning of the day. To set the tone, you need to begin with a clear mind. One of teh best ways to start with a clear mind and to continue to have a clear mind is to stay off social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.) until noon.

Doing this allows to you get your day moving without the drama that exists on social media. If your social media is anything like mine, it can be filled with political posts, random negative news and typical people drama. Do not start your day by turning on social media. Instead, start working before you turn on social media.

Do not let social media create your day; you create your day.

Eat Well Throughout the Day – Most people will fly through their day, especially the morning by eating food that does not give them the proper nutrients. One reason this happens is because of the small time constraints give themselves. Using #1 by waking up 15 minutes early will give you extra time to eat well.

Remember to give your body the nourishment it needs; not necessarily the quick and easy snack. A simple way to do this is to plan your day. I am not a “meal prep” type person, but I plan what I will eat and drink throughout the day. Give yourself some time to plan your meals and drinks throughout the day.

Also, drink water throughout the day. Put away the sugary drinks and concentrate on drinking half your body weight in ounces of water. For example, a 200 lbs person should drink about 100 ounces of water a day. By the way, coffee, carbonated drinks and sports drinks do not count as water.

Eat to live; not live to eat.

Sleep Well – Your body needs to rest. When you sleep, you give your body time to recover from all the activities during the day and prepare for the next day.

We all know the value of sleep, but the question is, “Are you getting enough sleep?”

Sleep well to be ready for another excellent day.

What other steps would you add to the list?
