You know that getting a good night's sleep is important for your health. But you might be surprised to learn how many ways sleep makes your life better. Sleep helps you lose weight, improve your athletic performance, prevent disease, and reduce inflammation. It even helps you get along better with the people in your life.
To get a good night's sleep, keep a regular schedule for when you go to sleep and wake up, avoid caffeine late in the afternoon and evening, and turn off your electronic devices well before bedtime. It also helps to have a beautiful, relaxing bedroom, like the ones you'll find in our Candlewood North apartments in Northridge. When you make good sleep a habit, these are some of the benefits you'll enjoy:
Lose or Maintain Weight
When you don't get enough sleep, you are more likely to gain weight. Lack of sleep affects the hormones that make you feel hungry. You could get cravings for carbs and fat, and your metabolism may slow down. When you sleep well, you will find it easier to eat healthier and to shed pounds or maintain your current weight, if that is your goal.
Be More Active
Lack of sleep can make you feel sluggish and not inclined to move around. But good sleep energizes you. It even improves your athletic performance and reaction times.
Prevent Health Problems
If you are sleep-deprived, you could increase your risk of getting diabetes or heart disease. Safeguard your health by getting enough sleep. Good sleep reduces stress and inflammation, and that helps keep you healthy.
Have Better Relationships
The quality of your sleep impacts your relationships. People who sleep poorly have more conflicts with other people the next day. On the other hand, people who sleep well are better able to resolve problems with their romantic partners, especially when both people are well-rested.
