What a Good Night’s Sleep could do for you?


I am sure I am one among millions of those out there that never gets enough sleep. The world just never switches off, it's busy and chaotic and there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done that you need to as well as finding the time to relax. The internet and social media are also to blame; with everything being at our fingertips it can be easy to spend hours looking at Instagram and wanting to achieve that perfect lifestyle. It's a constant struggle to keep up with the world and can cause problems at work, with money and other important aspects of life. This then has a detrimental effect on your sleep as you find yourself so busy trying to keep on top of things, those things that you deem less important like sleep suffer, meaning that simple day-to-day tasks become a huge struggle and untimely has a negative impact on you as a whole. This post explains the positive impact sleep can have on your life and general well being.

Appearance
Surprisingly not a lot of people realise, but sleep can be tied directly to your appearance. When you’ve been getting enough of it, your skin appears more radiant, with less shadows and a better colour. This is definitely one worth considering when you’re putting a lot of time and money into products that supposedly help with dark circles and radiance.

Health
Failing to get enough sleep can impact your health. We need sleep so that your body can heal and repair your heart and blood muscles as well as your body’s key functions as these work best when you’ve had a rest. This can also change the rate at which you lose weight, get fit, and metabolise your food. Think about when people can ill, most of the time they are told to sleep as this is how your body gets a chance to heal.

Productivity

One of the most obvious benefits, but if you get enough sleep your productivity levels improve massively. My productivity levels are shocking if I haven't had enough sleep. I struggle to do even the simplest things like reply to an email and it just seems like so much effort. Trying to work hard when you’re burnout is almost impossible. Your brain needs sleep to stay focused. It's all very well staying up to the late hours trying to get things done, but you will suffer for it the next day. When you do get enough sleep, the difference in your productivity is vast.

Mood

I'm really not a nice person to be around when I haven't had enough sleep. I am so grumpy and irritable and the only thing that can cure it is sleep. Being sleepy can be hugely frustrating, especially when it's stopping you from getting things done. When you have slept well on the other hand, you will notice a huge improvement in your mood, especially if you find it easy to get annoyed. Not a lot of people realise how grumpy tiredness makes them until they have finally had enough sleep. 

Getting Enough Of It- Sleep that is! 

I think I am one among many again who doesn't always get enough sleep. It's something that a lot of people struggle with as it's not simply staying up late that's the problem but your brain not switching off from your thoughts and worries. When you’re busy and stressed, the right kind of bed can go a long way towards helping you. With options like Silentnight Mattresses being perfect for those who find getting off to sleep a challenge. Getting the right bed and mattress is something that a surprising number of people put last. My partner and I really got our bed choice wrong last year meaning that both of us were hardly getting any sleep and my partner was waking up with back pain! So choose wisely when it comes to getting your bed and the difference can have a huge impact on your life.

Along with this, though you also have to start being stricter with yourself when it comes to bedtime, I know this is something that I really need to do. Having a set bedtime each night means you know when you need to start winding down from whatever it is you're doing. It also helps you keep track of just how much sleep you are getting each night, usually between seven and none hours a night is the right balance that will keep you productive throughout the day.


Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working harder on the time you put into your sleep. When the average person spends 25 years of their life sleeping, you know this is something that you shouldn't take for granted as it can have a huge impact on your day-to-day life. It's shocking really when you realise how few people take this part of their life seriously, so get those zzz's in!
