Health Benefits of Getting Enough Sleep

Getting enough sleep each night is extremely important to our physical and mental well-being. Sleep keeps our bodies balanced, helping us to have enough energy to function each day. If we tend to have interrupted sleep due to snoring or sleep apnea, our health can be jeopardized, and complications can occur if left untreated.

It is important to keep up with our health, and talk to a professional if you notice you are not getting enough sleep. While you sleep, if you wake up gasping for air or snore loudly, these are good reasons to make an appointment and let our team help find a solution. Snoring Laser Care has state of the art technology to treat both snoring and possibly sleep apnea with a variety of treatment options.

Health benefits of sleep:

  • You are not as susceptible to getting sick
  • Weight is maintained
  • Risk for serious health problems such as heart disease or diabetes are less
  • Stress is reduced
  • Improved mood
  • Ability to concentrate or focus better with daily tasks
  • Memory is improved
  • Reduce chance of depression

Sleep helps to reduce inflammation caused by increased stress hormones in the body. When this occurs, the body has a greater chance of developing heart conditions, or cancer. Inflammation can damage our bodies, and making sure you get proper sleep can help prevent this. Getting more than 6-7 hours of sleep is ideal to ensure you prevent health issues.

Melatonin, a hormone that regulates your sleep cycle helps to prevent cancer or suppress any tumor growth. Sleeping in a dark room and having a good bedtime routine to calm down and relax also help. Sleeping helps the body repair itself from stress or other harmful environmental exposure. Getting a good night’s sleep is not something to take lightly.
