Why We Sleep – Understanding the Dynamics of Sleep

Sleep is not a luxury. It is the ultimate way to restore, heal, and rejuvenate your mind and body.

 Healthy sleep empowers the body to fight off infection and disease. When your body and mind are deprived of sleep, you are deprived of health and emotional balance. Your mental and physical state deteriorates rapidly – increasing your chances of developing life-threatening cardiovascular and metabolic ailments over time. This is because sleep deprivation has a huge impact on your immune system. The amount and quality of sleep that you get also has a direct correlation with your mental wellbeing.

 Fact: You are more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety if you are sleep deprived.

What Exactly are Sleep Disorders?

If you have trouble falling (or staying) asleep on a day-to-day basis, you might be suffering from a sleep disorder. Sleep disorders are conditions that affect your ability to get adequate sleep – which impacts your daily life. Whether stress is to blame, or environmental and physiological factors, sleep disorders are indeed becoming increasingly common.

 It is crucial to receive the right treatment because, left untreated, sleep disorders like sleep apnea can cause negative (and sometimes fatal) health consequences. Lack of sleep affects your work performance and relationships, too.
