How can Sleep improve your Health?
Healthy living has never been as popular as it is today. More and more people are trying to lead balanced lives by taking care of their environment, working-out regularly, and eating well. However, there is one thing they mustn’t neglect – sleep.
Quality sleep time is just as important to health and well-being as food and exercise. But, what if you are one of the 50% of the population that is not getting enough rest and is experiencing daytime sleepiness? In that case, naps are the answer.
Although many people identify napping with laziness, short naps can actually be quite beneficial. In addition to curing drowsiness, they can also make you healthier. Research shows that a quick siesta during the day can significantly reduce the risk of heart failure or stroke.
Taking a nap for 10 to 12 minutes once or twice a week improves your cognitive abilities and mood. It basically gives your body a boost and leaves you feeling refreshed and alert.
