The Human Recharge

The Human Recharge

As you might have guessed it out by the title I gave this one, it is all about Sleep below.
The 5 alphabet word "S-L-E-E-P" was never a part of the school curriculum or if it was, then, I believe it was a very small part to the whole.
Surprisingly, it takes around 1/3rd of our 24-hour day, i.e. 1/3rd of our life, and still we aren't aware about it's what, where, when, why and how.



The importance of sleep is only known when you are tired and deprived of it.
A tired day must end with a sound sleep. True!
But before going through a tiring day also needs a sound sleep.
 
Sleep affects how we look, feel and perform on a daily basis, and can have a major impact on our overall quality of life. To get the most of our sleep, both quantity and quality are important.
 
Sleep plays an important role in your physical and psychological health i.e. all round health. 
Ongoing sleep deficiency can cause various sleep disorders and is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke.
Sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels.
A sound sleep can improve memory, help you concentrate better, keep you in great mood, make you look attractive, get you to fall less ill, and help you in the ability to make better informed decisions.
 
To conclude, the 1/3rd of our life that we spend sleeping, far from being "unproductive", plays a direct role in how full, energetic and successful the other 2/3rds of our lives can be.
