Sleep and your health: What's the connection?

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 19 Oct 2021

[article]

We all live a hectic life! We always have something to do or somewhere to be, and never seem to have enough time at our hands. In such a scenario, cutting down on sleep comes forward as the most easy way to make that ‘extra’ time in your day!

But that’s not good for your overall health! Having a healthy sleep pattern is as important as eating right or exercising regularly. Just like you need to recharge your phone after using it for the entire day, you body also needs to be recharged.

Sleep has that restorative property which refuels your mind, body and soul. It replenishes our energy levels and does the repair work. 

Here are a few aspects of women’s health that get impacted due to lack of sleep: 

Sleep and mental health

Sleep deprivation can significantly impact your mental health. It is essential for our nervous system to function properly. It impacts your cognitive thinking and hampers your memory. Getting a good amount of sleep also sharpens your reasoning and decision making skills.

Lack of sleep can effect your emotions as well. People with lesser sleep tend to be angrier, more likely to become anxious or depressed and find it difficult to cope with stress. Chronic sleep deprivation can even induce hallucinations.

Sleep relaxes your mind and gives it time to process and convince your body to calm down.

Sleep and immunity 

Believe it or not, sleep plays a crucial role in your building up your immunity. It gives your body time to rest and repair, which is one of the reasons why your body even asks for more sleep when you are unwell.

Sleep supports the proteins and cells that detect and destroy foreign invaders. This even helps your body remember the invaders and attack them next time so that they do not cause any harm.

Sleep and weight

Sleep plays an important role in controlling your appetite and might even help you with maintaining a healthy weight. If you are not sleeping properly then your body will need more energy because it is now active or awake for a longer period of time.

Some studies even suggest that sleeplessness results in changes in the levels of hormones that signal hunger and fullness. This might make you choose unhealthy foods and overeating  in the night can lead to weight gain and other gastronomical issues.

Sleep and skin & hair

Dark circles under the eyes, puffy eyes, frequent outbreaks, and dull skin! Lack of sleep can cause it all! As your body repairs itself when you snooze, not getting enough beauty sleep can result in bad skin and hair.

When you sleep, your skin makes collagen (which is a skin tightening protein) and your blood flow gets a boost.  This results in glowing and fresh skin.

Sleep and hormones

Your body releases a lot of hormones when you are sleeping. Not getting enough sleep or not sleeping at all can result in a hormonal imbalance in females. Women even experience a change in their sleep cycle during their menstrual cycle. If you are already suffering from hormonals imbalance then it is advisable that you start practicing healthier life choices like eating right, exercising every day and sleeping in time.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
