Getting a good night’s sleep is just as important to our bodies as eating, drinking and exercising. Adults need a good 7-9 hours of sleep for it to be fully beneficial. When we sleep, our bodies produce extra protein molecules that help strengthen our immune system to fight off infections. Besides strengthening our immune system, sleep also keeps your heart healthy, it reduces stress, it improves memory, it helps control body weight, it reduces your chances of diabetes, and it aids in mood disorders.
Turn that last TV show off and go to bed. The benefits of a good night’s sleep are well worth it!
Express your love today!
