We can all agree that all moms are superheroes. They are the queens of multitasking and are always there when we need them. But often times they compromise the most important thing that affects their health; their quality of sleep. So this Mother’s Day, give her the beauty rest she deserves and gift her the best gift ever: SLEEP.
Here is why sleep is the most valuable gift:
1. Improves productivity and focus
A good night’s sleep can do wonders for your brain function. The more tired you are, the more difficult it is to concentrate on daily tasks. A well-rested body, therefore, will improve productivity, cognition, focus, performance and will overall get your creative juices flowing throughout the day.
2. Helps maintain a healthy weight
Sleep deprivation is one of the main factors of obesity. According to research, not getting enough sleep results in a bigger appetite. So the next time you are thinking to go on a diet, you might want to fix your sleep habits first.
3. Boosts your memory
While you sleep, the brain sorts out your memories during the day and store the important ones in your long-term memory. Our ability to remember things get compromised when we are not getting enough sleep.
4. Lowers stress
Both sleep and stress have the same effect on your cardiovascular health. As sleep reduces stress, it is important that you get enough of it. Sleep can reduce cholesterol levels and also prevent major heart diseases.
5. Less likely to be in an accident
Insufficient sleep affects reaction time and decision making which can result in disastrous situations on the road. If you think that alcohol is more dangerous on the road compared to sleep, think again. Sleep deprivation is as dangerous as having one drink before driving.
6. Improves your mood
Lack of sleep reduces your ability to interact with others. Therefore, well-rested individuals are more likely to be liked by their co-workers and peers because they are simply happier human beings.
7. Strengthens the immune system
Good sleep helps the immune system remember a previous infection and produce a more effective response. It also reduces inflammation and improves responses to vaccinations.
