Do you get enough?

24 Apr

Are you feeling rested this morning?

Chances are you’re probably not getting as much sleep as you should.

Experts are hoping you open your eyes to see how much shut-eye you may be missing out on and what that means for your health.

Adults are supposed to get eight hours of sleep a night, but three-fourths of us aren’t getting enough shut eye, less than seven hours.

That’s where the world sleep day comes in.

Experts said, we need to focus on three elements of good quality sleep, length, continuity, and how deep of a sleep we get.

So what are we giving up with that sleep?

And here’s something that might keep you up at night. 

For every hour of sleep you lose, you need one full day to recover, so thinking you can pick up sleep later in the week may leave you more deprived than you think.

The world association of sleep medicine points out, getting enough sleep tends to increase our mental sharpness, emotional balance, and health, including weight.Image
