Sleep is a resting, repairing and regenerating time. For staying young this is a keypoint. You need to sleep eight hours each night to get rid of your stress and balance changes. If you don’t sleep enough, you will have a hard time loving life and staying young.
Sleep is the most important thing if you are to keep fit and stay feeling young. Even if you have the best diet and work-out regime; if your sleep is off it will have a huge impact.
Sleep will have an impact on your diet; if you are getting interrupted sleep, or you are not getting enough sleep it can undo the benefits of your diet. For those who are endeavouring to lose weight the loss of fat will be cut in half and they will feel significantly hungrier after their bad sleep.
Sleep is going to have an impact on how you feel and perform both physically and mentally the next day. If you have had poor sleep you will be tired, groggy with impaired mental functioning the next day. This is going to have an impact on everything you do all day.
There are a few tips to consider which will help you get more efficient sleep.
Create a consistent schedule and stick to it, that means avoiding sleeping-in at the weekend.
Create a bedtime ritual that will help you wind down and relax before bedtime.
Make sure you are neither hungry nor stuffed when you are going to bed.
Have cool air in your sleeping environment and make sure that you room is dark and quiet. This will help improve your sleep quality.
Also, remember the hours slept before midnight are often of higher quality than those slept after midnight.
