The Importance of Sleep

The Importance of Sleep
Sleep is a crucial part in helping you rest and recover. After a good night’s sleep, we wake up with our bodies feeling rejuvenated and ready for the day.
Here are just a few of the many benefits of a good snooze:
  • Cellular recovery- our cells repair and regrow whilst we sleep
  • Brain function- after a bad night’s sleep we often feel like we cannot focus properly. This is because whilst we sleep the brain reorganises the millions of neurons, enhancing our brain function.
  • Emotional and Mental wellbeing- Our emotional and mental wellbeing improves when we have a good night’s sleep as our brain structures rest and recover.
  • Heart Health- whilst we sleep, our heart rate reduces, allowing your heart to rest and recover.
  • Have a consistent bedtime routine
  • Limit caffeine intake in the evening
  • Avoid screens an hour before you go to sleep
  • Exercise during the day as this tires you out
  • Allow yourself down time to relax before bed- you can use a massage device to help you!
