New Years Resolution Quality Sleep

New Year’s Resolution: Quality Sleep!

With the New Year comes a fresh start and motivation to make changes. Whether your goal is to be healthier or save money, nothing can be accomplished without one thing: sleep!

Most of us put our rest on the backburner because of our busy schedules but getting our shuteye allows us to be our best.

Self-improvement starts with being refreshed because we have the energy and clarity of mind to accomplish all our goals, so here are the top reasons why getting more sleep should be your first resolution this year.

 

  • More “Me Time”! We all need to make more time for ourselves, and sleep is the epitome of self-care. Making yourself a priority is the most selfless thing you can do because you can’t give to others if you’re out of fuel. Taking time to relax and recuperate every night will help you feel better both mentally and physically, and will give you the steam to work harder and spend more time with your loved ones. The average adult needs 7-8 hours of sleep per night, and this time spent is an investment into your future and your health.

 

  • Heart Healthy The most common New Year’s Resolution is striving to become healthier, with the biggest factors being diet and exercise. But sleep is the third important part of that equation that is often overlooked! A healthy sleep schedule can help reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes, and has also been shown to help manage blood pressure and weight. Get healthy in this year by catching more z’s!

 

  • Less Stress, More Memories! Waking up feeling tired and groggy sets a negative tone for the rest of the day. When we enjoy deep sleep it can lead to better memory function and can help alleviate stress levels, something we all need! Stress can cause negative health effects and makes your entire schedule more difficult to manage. If you feel that your mattress isn’t providing sufficient support or comfort consider investing in a new one! A more rested you will be sure to make great memories in this new year, because the year will only be as great as the sleep you get!
