The Four Big Reasons You Need More Sleep
The most common reason our customers love their Privacy Pop is because it lets them get a good rest in a room that they once had difficulty falling asleep in. Whether you need some privacy in a shared bedroom, a way to block out bothersome light, or just enjoy the feeling of being cuddled up in your own space, the Privacy Pop is going to help you get a better night’s sleep, every night.
That’s a big cause for celebration - sleep plays a critical role in your physical and mental health, and the quality of your sleep can make an enormous difference in your well-being. We all know that going without sleep for too long makes us feel like garbage and that a good rest can make us feel like taking on the world, but there’s a lot more going on here.
Sleep provides your body with the chance to restore and rejuvenate itself. Most of the major tune-up functions in the body, like tissue repair, muscle growth, protein synthesis and growth hormone release occur mostly during sleep. While you’re snoozing, your body also gets the opportunity to clear out any adenosine, a by-product of cellular activity that makes us feel tired - which is the reason you feel more alert when you wake up! Here are a few other surprising benefits to getting a good night’s rest.
1. Improves your memory. During sleep, your brain consolidates what it was taught throughout the day, strengthening your memories and reviewing skills you learned while awake. This is critical - especially if you’re a student!
2. Helps you avoid depression and stress. Good sleep helps you stabilize your moods and decrease anxiety, helping you stay mentally fit and balanced. People who sleep well also have better control of their blood pressure and even report lower cholesterol levels.
3. Helps you stay fit. Sleep and metabolism are controlled by the same part of your brain, so when you’re denied sleep, your appetite can spike. It’s been proven that people trying to lose weight are much more successful when they’re getting to bed on time. Good sleep also give you more energy and stamina for those early morning workouts.
4. Keeps you safe. Insufficient sleep can be as damaging to your motor skills as a cocktail! With a good night’s rest, you’ll be far less likely to get in an accident or hurt yourself. Sleep tight!
