But many people are chronically lacking in sleep, and this leads to significant health problems. Especially if you wake up early for work, unless you’re in bed at 9 pm every night, you certainly do not sleep enough.
2. Your waking hours must be consistent – regardless of the time.
3. Sleeping improves your memory.
When you sleep, long – term memory retention, memory organization, and learning increase. Why? This is related to our quick eye movements, or the stages of sleep. Mark Greer of the American Psychology Association suggests that these mental abilities can be reinforced by a simple rest.
“In addition to stimulating alertness, sleep – especially REM sleep – is a way for the brain to store new information in the long-term memory,” says Greer.
4. Sleeping makes you happier
Waking up naturally rather than with an alarm makes you happier on awakening and throughout the day. You are mostly tired because of the way you woke up. You might think that you are ready to operate to the best of your ability, but in fact, you have a big shot in the afternoon.
So get enough sleep, wake up at the right time, let yourself sleep and you’ll get a lot better.
