Sleep Is Your Superpower
There's no better feeling than waking up after a good night's sleep.
When was the last time you woke up feeling great? Quality sleep is something many struggles with.
How Does Sleep Quality Affect Our Bodies?
Short sleep duration is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity. Dr Michael Grandner, Professor of Behavioral Sleep Medicine at the University of Arizona says, “Bad sleep" isn't just more time awake; sleep is a totally different mode and by not allowing yourself to do that job, you're asking the body to cut corners and that's dangerous.” If you're aiming to improve your health, quality sleep is crucial to give you the advantage.
Can Sleep Affect Performance?
Sleep is important for all aspects of brain function. This includes cognition, concentration, memory and performance. All of these are negatively affected by sleep deprivation. When we are well rested and reset, our bodies will find balance and performance will improve.
How Does Sleep Affect Our Mood?
The better we sleep, the better our mood. Mental health issues are strongly linked to poor sleep quality and sleeping disorders. It is estimated that 90% of people with depression complain about sleep quality. Those with sleeping disorders like insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea also report significantly higher rates of depression than those without.
