Sleep is something that we all have in common. Our body and mind need sleep. So much so that poor sleeping patterns have been widely linked to an increase in bad health.
The argument on how much sleep is necessary for the average human is an ongoing debate, one that looks like a definitive conclusion is still far off, but I think we can all agree sleep as a whole is hugely important to us as humans.
Many argue that the required amount of sleep one needs varies from person to person. You may only properly function after a solid 8 hours sleep while your ‘morning friend’ is bright and perky after just 6 hours. This seems highly unfair, but it is what it is. However there are ways to help combat that ‘groggy morning’ feeling.
So with it agreed that sleep is hugely important, just what goes on while we sleep and why is so important to our overall health? See the infographic below.
