6 Benefits of Getting Into Bed Earlier

6 Benefits of Getting Into Bed Earlier

Research shows that a lack of sleep doesn’t only affect your health but also your athletic performance. Here are 6 benefits of getting 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

  1. MINIMIZED SNIFFLES: Some studies suggest that chronic sleep deprivation is linked to immune system depression, meaning people who get fewer hours of sleep may be more susceptible to the common cold.
  2. ENHANCED PERFORMANCE: Various studies suggest athletes who don’t get enough of sleep report a reduction in their sports-specific, athletic performance.
  3. FASTER RECOVERY: A good night’s sleep promotes growth hormones, which speeds up regeneration of cells and muscle growth.
  4. FEELING LESS HUNGRY: When you’re deprived of sleep, levels of the appetite-controlling hormone leptin go down, while levels of the appetite-boosting hormone ghrelin increase.
  5. BOOSTED FAT LOSS: Too little sleep has been associated to an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which may impact insulin resistance, a risk factor for diabetes and obesity.
  6. MORE ENERGY FOR SEX: A new study discovered that women who went to bed earlier were more likely to be in the mood for sex the following day than women who didn’t get enough sleep.
