You may think that by loving to sleep or by sleeping a lot you are just being lazy, but actually, getting your sleep is one of the easiest and most important ways to living a healthy life. Many feel that sleep takes away from the time that could be spent working, doing chores, or running errands, but in order to live a healthy life, sleep should not be compromised for doing more in a day. In fact, by getting enough sleep, you’ll be able to have more productive days because you will find yourself to be more alert and focused and less stressed.

Aside from the instant effects of a proper sleep life, sleep has shown to help reduce blood pressure, the risk of cancer, inflammation, and your risk for depression. Your body repairs and rejuvenates itself primarily during the time you are sleeping because cells produce more protein while you are sleeping allowing the cells to repair and damage caused by stress, ultraviolet rays, other harmful exposures, or injury. Sleep also alters the chemical balances and imbalances within your body, which is why sleep helps to relieve stress, and depression, and lose weight, all of which are affected by hormones in your body. It has also been shown that by getting enough sleep people are able to retain knowledge better, resulting a smarter person with better memory.
