If you live in a fast paced town like me (New York), chances are high that you hardly get enough sleep. Even if you don’t live in a busy city, things and people can disrupt your pillow time.
Continuing to deprive your body of sleep is slow suicide. You may get away with it for a while but eventually it catches up with you. Just look at the consequences you’ll face if your body is regularly deprived of sleep:
- Mental impairment
- Reduced physical ability
- Increased stress levels
- A compromised immune system
- Short term memory loss
- Blood sugar problems
- High blood pressure
While this list is not exhaustive, you get the point right? You don’t need to necessarily get 10 hours of shut eye nightly but you do need to listen to your body and give it at the least 7 hours of sleep nightly.
You’ll refresh your entire being by prioritizing a full night of sleep. Don’t stop there. Try to get enough sleep at least 6/7 days a week.
