One of the most important things you can do for overall health and well-being is: sleep.

Healthy sleep is essential for optimum energy, immunity, cognitive ability, and physical strength and resilience. Good sleep helps to slow the aging process and reduce the risk of illness and diseaseโ€”everything from the common cold to heart disease.

While youโ€™re asleep, your body works to:
โ€ข repair tissues (including those involved in muscle growth and healing injuries)
โ€ข regulate hormone levels (including those that control appetite, metabolism, and stress)
โ€ข form new pathways in your brain for learning and memory
โ€ข process and regulate emotions

โ€ข Weight gain
โ€ข Weakened immune system
โ€ข Increased risk of diabetes
โ€ข Increased risk of heart disease and stroke
โ€ข Reduction in cancer-fighting cells
โ€ข Increased risk of injury
โ€ข Increased stress hormone levels

โ€ข Trouble managing emotions
โ€ข Reduced reproductive health

โ€ข Strengthened immune system
โ€ข Heightened alertness, focus, and creativity
โ€ข Improved mood
โ€ข Improved physical performance and ability to build muscle
