The Importance of Sleep

Getting enough sleep is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Your body has four main driving forces – hunger, thirst, sex and sleep. Without sleep, you will experience far worse side effects than just tiredness – some that are very serious.

Here are six areas that will be affected should you forgo an adequate amount of sleep per night:

  1. Metabolism, weight and diabetes
  2. Learning and memory
  3. Cardiovascular health
  4. Disease
  5. Safety
  6. Mood
