Importance of Sleep and Rest for Performance and General Health

We all know what it feels like if we do not get enough sleep. It really is awful isn’t it?  No energy, lethargy, and inability to perform at our best.  That’s why it’s vital that we get enough sleep every night. 

When you are sleeping you are repairing.  You are restoring.  You are rebuilding what’s broken down over the course of your day. Muscles, tissues etc.  Getting enough sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life and even your safety.

Sleep plays a major role in your brain functioning properly. Whilst sleeping, your brain is preparing to it’s next mission, it’s next day.  It’s forming new pathways to help you learn and rememember more information.

No matter what it is you are learning, sleeping well and getting enough sleep is important. Having a clear mind allows you to make better decisions and choices in life. Really sleep is so vital for many of our day to day functions. 

Because sleep is also vital for our physical health, lack of it can affect you long term as well.  Sleep is involved in the healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. So without sleep, you are increasing your risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and even stroke.  If you ask me, getting enough sleep is a much better option.

So, what can you do to ensure you get enough sleep every night? There are several things you can do.  Developing a regular routine where you go to sleep and wake up at the same time every night is important.

Other things you can do is have quiet time before bed, avoid eating large meals before retiring, get outside and some form of physical exercise daily and avoiding nicotine, or caffeine products.  Keeping your bedroom quiet, cool and dark is a great help as is taking a hot relaxing bath before bed.  Using supplements to help you sleep could also be a great way to ensure a restful night ahead.
