From the dawn of human history, people needed darkness to sleep and the daylight to wake up. That’s how the human body rests.
In modern times, electricity gave us the opportunity to have light during the night, but it “stole” from us the chance to sleep early and therefore, get a good night’s sleep.
So, what is the importance of a good night’s sleep?
- Our brain needs a relaxing sleep in order to function well. Concentration and productivity are improved when you have a long, restful sleep.
- Furthermore, sleeping time helps human immune system to function better. If you get cold often, check if you get less than 7 hours of sleep. This may be one of the causes.
- Have you ever thought how your sleep time affects your social life? Sleep deprivation may cause difficulty in recognizing other people’s emotional expressions and thus, it may cause reduced social skills.
Good sleeping habits may improve your health and your everyday life! Make sure that you get a good, restful sleep.
And don’t forget that a prerequisite for a restful sleep is the total darkness!
