World Sleep Day – The importance of getting a good night’s sleep

The 15th March is World Sleep Day and the most fitting way to celebrate is with some well earned slumber. But why is it so important to get a good night’s sleep?

Improves learning and memory

During sleep, your brain is busy making new pathways and maintaining existing ones which help you build memories. Everything you learn and experience during the day is transferred from your short term memory into your long term memory store at night so the more quality time you give your brain to do this, the better your skills will be the next day.

Mood and wellbeing

It’s well documented that the quality of your sleep can have a big impact on your mood and wellbeing. With plenty of shut eye you’ll feel more energised and ready to take on the day. However, poor quality sleep will leave you struggling to focus properly, with a short temper and low mood.

Social interaction

Getting a good night’s sleep doesn’t just make you feel more alert, it can also make us more outgoing and socially confident, as well as making us look more appealing to other people. So it’s not all about dressing to impress, it’s also best to get in some quality rest if you want to look and feel sharp.

Disease prevention and immunity

Who would have thought 40 winks could do wonders for your body and your immune system? It has been proven that high quality sleep can help your body fight away things like diabetes and heart disease, as well as more common ailments such as colds and flu. So if you’re feeling a bit under the weather, try snuggling up and getting some shut eye to boost your body’s defences.
