Sleep is very good for the body and, in order to stay healthy in the new year, you will need enough sleep.
Deep sleep triggers the body to release the hormone that promotes normal growth in children and teens. The hormone also boosts muscle mass and helps repair cells and tissues in children, teens, and adults.
Some of the most serious potential problems associated with chronic sleep deprivation are high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, heart failure and stroke.
Other potential problems include obesity, depression and lower s*x drive. Chronic sleep deprivation can even affect your appearance.
On the other hand, getting enough sleep reduces stress, improves your memory, lowers blood pressure, helps the body fight back, and puts you in a better mood.

However, people complain that they do not get enough sleep, maybe due to stress and other factors. This is known as insomnia. Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterised by difficulty in falling and/or staying asleep.
Common causes of chronic insomnia include stress, and concerns about work, school, health, finances or family. These can keep your mind active at night, making it difficult to sleep.
Stressful life events or trauma such as the death or illness of a loved one, a divorce, or a job loss also may also lead to insomnia.
Here are a few tips to help with that case of insomnia:
- Wake up at the same time each day.
- Eliminate alcohol and stimulants like nicotine and caffeine.
- Limit naps.
- Exercise regularly.
- Limit activities in bed.
- Do not eat or drink right before going to bed.
- Make your sleeping environment comfortable.
- Reduce stress.
You need enough sleep to be active all through the day. Stick with the tips above, and thank us later.
