A person needs to get enough sleep to help maintain the best health and fitness. When it comes to their health, sleep is as important as regular exercise and eating a balanced diet.
When you sleep, your body produces proteins called cytokines that have immune effects and serve as fuel for your white blood cells.
Lack of sleep reduces the production of cytokines and makes you more sensitive to bacteria and viruses. Short sleep duration is associated with increased risk of obesity and weight gain.
Lack of sleep can increase your appetite and cause you to eat more calories. In particular, you are more likely to eat more sugar and greasy foods.
Sleep is an important, often overlooked, component of every person's overall health and well-being. Sleep is important because it enables the body to repair and fit and is ready for the next day.
Getting proper rest can also help prevent excess weight, heart disease, and an increase in the duration of the disease. Most adults need night sleep between seven and nine hours.
Children and young people need a lot of sleep, especially if they are under the age of five. Work schedules, daily stress, a disruptive bedroom environment, and medical conditions can all prevent us from getting enough sleep.
Healthy diet and positive lifestyle habits can help ensure a proper amount of sleep every night - but for some people chronic lack of sleep can be the first sign of sleep disorder.
