Don’t Underestimate The Power of Sleep
Importance of Sleep
35 % of adults don’t get enough sleep and this could be detrimental to their overall health.
In order to sleep well, both quantiy and quality plays an important role. Sleeping more is not necessarily healthier. According to Dr. Alcibiades Rodriguez, assistant professor of neurology at NYU Langone Health, “Some people can function with fewer hours, but actually, some people may need more hours.”
As we age, our sleep also tends to get lighter, so it is not as deep as it used to be when we were younger.
Those who are sleep deficient usually have difficulty in controlling their emotions, have slower reaction time and are prone to make more mistakes.
It is important to establish a sleeping routine by maintain a regular sleep pattern every night even on the weekends.
