Why is Sleep Important?

Why is Sleep Important?

As more and more sleep research is conducted, the more we understand about its importance to our overall health and wellbeing. 

Scientific studies have revealed not only the many benefits of the quality of sleep, but also the negative consequences of temporary or prolonged sleep deprivation. 

Good quality sleep positively impacts: 

  1. Memory and learning
  2. Physical training
  3. Our ability to deal with trauma and stress 

While poor quality sleep has been linked to: 

  1. Increased accidents 
  2. Alzheimer’s disease 
  3. Cardiovascular disease and hypertension 
  4. Diabetes and obesity 
  5. Reproductive and immune systems 
  6. Depression 

The impact of sleep on our health and wellbeing is so far reaching that both the ‘World Health Organisation’ and the ‘Centres for Disease Control and Prevention’ in the United States, have declared sleep disorders a public health epidemic. If the wellbeing risks and benefits weren’t enough then lack of sleep has also been proven to impact: 

  1. Your ability to asses risk 
  2. Innovative thinking 
  3. Reaction times 
  4. Irritability 
  5. Stress 
  6. Absenteeism 
  7. Productivity 

Did you know that lack of sleep has been proven to be the catalyst for major incidents such as Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Exxon Valdez and the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster?

If you suffer from lack of sleep and you would like to improve the quality of your sleep as a matter of urgency, we can help.
