Surprising Health Benefits of Sleep

Go ahead, snooze!

Sleep makes you feel better, but it’s importance goes way beyond just boosting your mood or banishing under-eye circles.  Adequate sleep is a part of a healthy lifestyle, and can benefit your heart, weight, mind, and more.

Improve memory

Your mind is surprisingly busy while you snooze. During sleep you can strengthen memories or “practice” skills learned while you were awake (it’s a process called consolidation).  In other words if you’re trying to learn something new—whether it’s Spanish or a new tennis swing—you’ll perform better after sleeping.

Lower stress

When it comes to our health stress and sleep are nearly one and the same—and both can affect cardiovascular health.
