Improves your attention and concentration. Not sleeping properly can mean that both your body and brain do not function properly the next day. It could impair your attention span, concentration, strategic thinking, risk assessment and reaction times. So, getting plenty of sleep can help you to stay sharp and focused all day long.
Helps you to learn and make memories. As you sleep, your brain begins to organise and process all the information you have taken on during the day. It converts your short-term memories into long-term memories. This helps you to learn and means that when you wake up, you can often see things more clearly.
Helps you maintain a healthy weight. A good night's sleep is one of the keys to good health-and may also be a key to maintaining a healthy weight. There is mounting evidence that people who get too little sleep have a higher risk of weight gain and obesity than people who get seven to eight hours of sleep a night.
Keeps your heart healthy. Sleep is essential for a healthy heart. People who don't sleep enough are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease—regardless of age, weight, smoking and exercise habits. Getting enough good quality sleep is important if you want to lower you risk of these conditions.
Keeps your immune system strong. Sleep supports the proteins and cells of your immune system to detect and destroy bugs and germs – it also helps them to remember them, so they can fight them off even quicker in future.
Reduces your stress levels. A good night's sleep makes you able to tackle the day's stress more easily. When you are tired, you are less patient and more easily agitated, which can increase stress.
