Ever wake up in the morning in a bad mood? Or have you gotten out of bed feeling sore and out of sorts in the morning? Chances are you might have had a bad case of insufficient or poor quality sleep.
According to mattress manufacturers King Koil, “most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep each night. newborns , on the other hand, sleep between 16 to 18 hours a day, while children in preschool may sleep between 10 and 12 hours daily,” the company said in the Sleep Facts section of its website. “School-age children and teens need at least 9 hours of sleep each night.” King Koil also suggested to “develop a sleep schedule that works...and stick to it. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day - even on the weekends.”
Harvard University’s Medical School warned that getting less than the prescribed amount of sleep can make you “feel unmotivated...continued sleep deprivation raises the risk of a number of chronic health problems, including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease,” the school noted. “Insufficient sleep can also leave you more vulnerable to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.”
On the other hand, webmd.com highlighted the benefits of a good night’s sleep as follows.
The website noted that less sleep can disrupt your eye for detail. “Sleep plays a big part in both learning and memory. Without enough sleep, it’s tough to focus and take in new information,” said the website. “Sleep lets your brain catch up so you’re ready for what’s next.”
webmd.com also noted that quality sleep is essential in maintaining emotional equilibrium, and noted that “chronic lack of sleep can also raise the chance of having a mood disorder...when you have insomnia, you’re five times more likely to develop depression, and your odds of anxiety or panic disorders are even greater.”
The website said quality sleep, even naps, can do wonders for your heart, as it lowers your blood pressure, allowing your heart a rest. On the other hand, “the less sleep you get, the long your blood pressure stays up during a 24-hour cycle.”
Quality sleep can reduce the amount of glucose in your blood during the deep phase of the sleep cycle. “Not enough time in this deepest stage means you don’t get that break to allow a reset...your body will have a harder time responding to your cells’ needs and blood levels.”
Quality sleep has also been linked to controlling your appetites. “Being sleep-deprived messes with the hormones in your brain - leptin and ghrelin - that control appetite,” the website warned. “With those out of balance, your resistance to the temptation of unhealthy foods goes way down. And when you’re tired, you’re less likely to want to get up and move your body.”
