Why Is Sleep Important?

Feb 03, 2022 Alex Brecher

Sleep feels good. But it goes way beyond being a luxury. Getting enough high-quality sleep is critical for optimal well-being, short-term and long-term physical health, and mental health. And your body depends on certain vitamins and other nutrients for healthy sleep.

Here are five reasons why sleep is important, and how a PatchAid Sleep Aid Vitamin Patch is formulated to address this important part of life.

  • It lets you feel good.
  • This is a bit abstract, but chances are you know what it feels like when it happens. When you get a good night of sleep, you may feel on top of the world and at your best. Having a short night or two, or tossing and turning for hours, can make you feel sluggish.

  • It sharpens your mind.
  • Your brain is busy while you are asleep. It processes what happened during the day, and it gets ready for what may come the next day. When you are well rested, you can think more sharply and make better decisions.

  • It’s good for weight control.
  • Sleep deprivation throws hormones out of whack, including hunger hormones. When you need sleep, you may feel hungrier than usual. That can lead you to seek more food than your body needs. Often, that food is unhealthy. People who do not sleep enough tend to have higher body weights.

  • It lowers blood sugar.
  • Getting enough sleep is crucial for letting your body regulate blood sugar. Even a single night of sleep deprivation can raise blood sugar.

  • It helps your immune system.
  • The immune system is in the headlines nowadays with the COVID-19 pandemic. If you want to fight COVID-19 and lower your risk of other infections, too, get enough sleep. 

  • It lowers the risk of accidents.
  • Driving drowsy is about as bad as driving drunk. How scary is that? Getting enough sleep is necessary for being able to focus while on the road and to respond better if a serious situation comes up.

  • It makes you happier.
  • Sleep deprivation is linked to depression, and a poorer mood, such as feeling angry or being unable to cope. When you sleep a healthy amount, you are more likely to feel happy and able to handle whatever comes your way.
