9 Reasons Why Sleep Is So Important
Lack of sleep can lead to increased blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Both of these can lead to heart disease or stroke. If we sleep 7 to 9 hours every night, our heart will be healthier.
2. Reduces Stress
When we are lacking sleep, our body enters a state of stress. This increases blood pressure and causes the production of stress hormones. Stress hormones then make it harder for us to fall asleep. By getting a good nights sleep, we can break the stress circle and counteract its effects on our body.
