Why You Need Sleep

A good night’s sleep is just as important to your health as eating a balanced diet and exercising.


Studies have shown that there is a strong link between poor sleep and weight gain. Factors such as hormone disruptions, lack of motivation to exercise from low energy, and consuming more calories account for the link between obesity and lack of sleep.

Good sleep is associated with improved cognition, concentration, productivity, and performance. In fact, sleep deprivation can negatively impact some aspects of brain function to a similar degree as alcohol intoxication.

Finally, sleep is linked to glucose metabolism, which means poor sleep habits are also strongly linked to adverse effects on blood sugar. Diabetes, heart disease, and stroke risks are increased in sleep-deprived individuals.

Getting 7-8 hours of quality sleep is crucial to health. Can you think of any habits you might have that are hindering you from a proper night’s rest?
