Benefits of Sleep:The benefits of sleep impact nearly every area of daily life. While it may be obvious that sleep is beneficial, most people don’t realize how much sleep they need and why it is so important.
Sleep helps to repair your body-Your body produces extra protein molecules while you’re sleeping that helps strengthen your ability to fight infection and stay healthy. These molecules help your immune system mend your body at a cellular level when you are stressed or have been exposed to compromising elements such as pollutants and infectious bacteria.
Sleep helps keep your heart healthy-Your  cardiovascular system is constantly under pressure and sleep helps to  reduce the levels of stress and inflammation in your body. High levels  of “inflammatory markers” are linked to heart disease and strokes. Sleep  can also help keep blood pressure and cholesterol levels (which play a  role in heart disease) in check.

Sleep reduces stress-A good night’s sleep can  help lower blood pressure and elevated levels of stress hormones, which  are a natural result of today’s fast paced lifestyle. High blood  pressure can be life threatening and the  physical effects of stress  can produce “‘wear and tear” on your body and degenerate cells, which  propel the aging process. Sleep helps to slow these effects and  encourages a state of relaxation.


Sleep improves your memory-That ‘foggy’ feeling  that you struggle with when deprived of sleep makes it difficult to  concentrate. This often leads to memory problems with  facts, faces,  lessons, or even conversations.  Sleeping well eliminates these  difficulties because, as you sleep, your brain is busy organizing and  correlating memories.
One of the great benefits of sleep is that  it allows your brain to better process new experiences and knowledge,  increasing your understanding and retention. So, next time you hear  someone say “why don’t you sleep on it,” take their advice.


Sleep helps control body weight issues-Sleep  helps regulate the hormones that affect and control your appetite.  Studies have shown that when your body is deprived of sleep, the normal  hormone balances are interrupted and your appetite increases.  Unfortunately this increase in appetite doesn’t lead to a craving for  fruits and veggies. Rather, your body longs for foods high in calories,  fats, and carbohydrates.
So, if you’re trying to lose those  stubborn few pounds that just keep hanging around, consider the benefits  of sleep on weight control and make sure that getting enough sleep each  day. 


Sleep reduces your chances of diabetes-Researchers have  shown that lack of sleep may lead to type 2 diabetes by affecting how  your body processes glucose, which is the carbohydrate your cells use  for fuel.


Sleep reduces the occurrence of mood disorders-With  insufficient sleep during the night, many people become agitated or  moody the following day. Yet, when limited sleep becomes a chronic  issue, studies have shown it can lead to long-term mood disorders such  as depression or anxiety.

Benefits of not eating sweets:
You’ll have more energy and be more productive
You’ll feel less sluggish in the afternoon
You’ll be able to appreciate more subtle tastes
You’ll be in control of your diet (and therefore your body)
You’ll waste less money on junk food and sweets
