Amazing Benefits of Quality Sleep

sleep quality

Sleep like air, food, and water is the basic necessity of our lives. High-quality sleep not only allows the body to get adequate rest but also regulates the balance of important systems in our body. It is also an important way to stabilize our emotions, help anti-aging, and maintain health.

7 key benefits of quality sleep

1. Weight Control

Sleep plays an important role in weight control and affects two important appetite hormones in our body – Leptin, and Ghrelin. Leptin is an appetite-reducing hormone, so when Leptin levels are high, we usually feel full; Ghrelin is an appetite-stimulating hormone that causes us to crave food.

Lack of sleep increases Ghrelin and decreases Leptin. And a combination of these two conditions can increase a person’s appetite, making calorie control more difficult. In addition, Ghrelin rises fastest from 11 pm to 1 am. If we are awake at this time, we may want to eat high-fat and high-calorie foods. On the contrary, if you fall into a deep sleep during this time, it will not only boost metabolism but also help burn body fat.

2. Increase Immunity And Prevent Disease

It is often heard that “lack of sleep is the source of all diseases”. Sleep and immunity are inseparable. Continued lack of sleep will reduce the body’s immune function, making people prone to illness, and will greatly increase the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, and other long-term diseases. Lack of sleep or poor sleep quality also increases the incidence of colds, diarrhea, and cardiovascular disease.

An experimental report in the United States proves that “lack of sleep is more likely to catch a cold.” The results of the experiment showed that people who sleep less than 7 hours on average have three times the risk of catching a cold than those who sleep more than 8 hours.

3. Improve Learning Performance

Sleep has a great impact on brain learning and memory, including cognition, attention, creativity, and performance. When sleep is insufficient, it is difficult to absorb new knowledge and recall details, and our brain will become sluggish. Adequate sleep allows the brain to have enough time to reorganize, absorb and consolidate the information received during the daytime, and then turn it into a long-term memory, which can help improve learning performance.

4. Stabilize Mood And Prevent Depression

The brain remains active during sleep, it will process the information and emotions received during the day. If you have inadequate sleep, the brain will not have enough time to recognize and manage them, and more negative emotional reactions will occur. 

According to a large study, people who suffer from insomnia are five times more likely to suffer from depression than normal sleepers and are more likely to suffer from anxiety or panic disorders. Having a good night’s sleep like pressing a reset button, allows us to improve our minds and take on challenges positively.

5. Keep Your Heart Healthy 

When you sleep, your heart and other major blood vessel cells are repaired. High-quality sleep can effectively boost the heart, activate blood circulation, help lower blood pressure and allow the cardiovascular system to get enough rest. Conversely, people with insomnia have a greater chance of having heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or stroke.

6. Improve Sports Performance And Strengthen Your Body

Adequate sleep can effectively improve sports performance. According to research, quality sleep aids metabolism, hormonal balance, and muscle recovery, as well as increases alertness and acuity, allowing better focus on athletic training, thereby enhancing sports performance.

Our body produces growth hormones during sleep, which is an important part of development for young people; for adults, these growth hormones become an important unit of muscle growth and repair, so good sleep is one of the important lifestyle habits to maintain a strong body.

7. Keep You Looking Radiant

Often hear people say that you can take care of your skin by taking beauty sleep. If you sleep well, your skin will naturally look good. Our body not only repairs the health of internal organs but also repairs your skin during sleep. The skin will automatically renew and generate new cells to replace the aging cells, our skin is repaired, but lack of sleep will disrupt the entire update process.But more importantly, when you sleep, your body will hydrate naturally; if you don’t get enough sleep, the hydration will not be effective, your skin will turn yellow and become dry, your eyes will be swollen, and more visible wrinkles in the result.

The correct beauty sleep does not mean sleeping until you wake up naturally but entering a deep sleep state at the golden sleep time, i.e. every night from 10:00 pm to 2:00 am the next day, the metabolism is most active during this time, helping to secrete growth hormone and melatonin, repairing and regenerating cells, and delaying your skin aging.
