The Importance Of a Good Night’s Sleep

The Importance Of a Good Night’s Sleep

We’re not just talking about avoiding dark circles under the eyes, even though some think even coffee might cause this. Some other surprising reasons for getting enough shuteye are below.

It improves your memory

Your brain better stores and strengthens memories when it has enough sleep time to reorganise and restructure them in your sleep. Some think that this leads to improved creativity, so catch plenty of winks before you pick up that guitar, easel or pad and paper.

Improves Work and Academic Performance

Needless to say, you won’t be able to concentrate or learn as well if your short-term memory is hampered, but studies have been able to prove that people with sleep apnea or other sleep disordered breathing problems have lower concentration levels in waking life, and that college aged students who were sleep deprived, even very temporarily, had worse grade scores than those with adequate sleep.

Of course, your first port of call for making sure you get adequate sleep is to have a high enough quality bed. It isn’t enough to prop your head up with more pillows, a supportive mattress and frame is needed to take bodyweight of the extremities when you sleep. Shop around for memory foam accessories that will help with this. Right now 2 man home delivery is offered by Bedstar with the added option of next day delivery.

The Importance Of a Good Night’s Sleep



Healthier Hair

Hair follicles get their nutrients from adequate blood flow to the scalp, and this is hampered when we don’t get enough sleep. The effect of this is decreased food for the follicles which results in less well-nourished hair, resulting in stunted growth and breakages. Since a lack of adequate sleep can cause stress, the stress hormone cortisol can increase causing an added loss of hair. In more extreme cases it causes stress-related alopecia.

Skin and Complexion

Back to the blood flow issue: if decreased consistency in your blood flow can affect your hair, it can also cause a slightly ashen and tired look in your face because of the decrease of flow to the capillaries on the skin’s surface. Subtle changes in facial expression also occur when sleep deprived, which include a slight drooping at the corners of the mouth.
