Sleep is not only essential for your physical health, but for your mental health as well. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you’re getting enough good, quality sleep each night. The average adult needs 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. However, if you’re sick, sleep deprived, or just overall tired, you probably need to catch up on your rest and sleep more than that amount.
Lack of sleep can leave you feeling moody, stressed, or overwhelmed. On top of that, it can make performing daily activities more difficult than usual, since a lack of sleep impacts your memory and concentration.
Sleep deprivation also impacts your physical health in a number of ways. It can weaken your immunity, and increase your risk of having an accident, gaining weight, or getting heart disease and diabetes. The stress and exhaustion of poor physical health can also impact your mental health.
Ultimately, it’s important to make good sleep a priority in your life. It affects everything you do.
