We know that sleep is important, it is something that we were taught at a young age.
But have you ever asked why is sleep so important? Here are some critical things that happen while you are asleep:
Brain- the cerebral spinal fluid whisks away the waste that the brain cells create. This allows you to wake up the next day with a clean slate.
Heart- it gets a break while you are sleeping. During non-REM sleep your heart gets to rest, which reduces your heart rate and blood pressure.
Muscles- growth hormones rebuild your muscles and joints. The more sleep you get the easier it is for your body to repair it’s self.
Make sure that you prioritize sleep so that you can think straight, give your heart a break, and grow nice and tall.
