The quality of the sleep you get each night directly affects your mental and physical health and the subsequent quality of your waking hours, including your productivity, emotional balance, brain and heart health, immune system, creativity, vitality, and even your metabolism and weight.
Sleep allows your body time to recover from any workouts, conserve energy, and repair and build up the muscles worked during exercise. When we get enough good quality sleep, the body produces muscle growth hormones to repair itself even more efficiently.
The average adult consistently needs between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Combined with a balanced diet, getting the right amount of sleep can afford you to make major improvements in your productivity, emotional and physical wellbeing, and even your mood!
