You might be getting enough hours, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re getting the most restful sleep. These strategies can help.
When it comes to sleep, quantity is important—but so is quality. Most adults need somewhere between seven and nine hours a night to wake up feeling well-rested, but a lot depends on exactly what happens during those hours. Sleep quality ensures that you get the essential physical, mental, and emotional benefits you need from your slumber.
It’s no secret that sleep is one of the most important activities for good health. When we sleep, our bodies take time to:
Repair muscles, grow bones, manage hormones, sort memories
Your body cycles through the stages of sleep each night: three stages of non-REM sleep and one stage of REM sleep. During these sleep cycles, our breathing, heart rate, muscles, and brain waves are all affected differently.
Getting enough sleep is important for health-promoting activities like digestion, growth, and memory. Certain sleep disorders, like insomnia, can cause poor sleep quality and difficulty functioning throughout the day.
The best thing you can do to improve your sleep quality is to address any underlying conditions and work on your sleep hygiene.--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/effortlessmeditation/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/effortlessmeditation/support
