Why you need healthy sleep
Every day of our lives, we have always been functioning and functioning non-stop. It may not be with our physical activities but it can be with our mental activities as well. When you watch your favorite show on Netflix, you tend to process how the storyline goes, and thus, you function. The hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock would be an amazing tool to help you fall asleep better at night and wake up naturally in the morning without having to deal with the annoying sound of a loud beep of your alarm.
According to a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review, this alarm clock moves in a calm way that gently wakes you up without having to awaken your body in an alarming way. This will help to brighten up a part of your room little by little until it is your alarm time so that you can sense that it is waking time already.
Falling asleep is such a hard task especially if you are a true insomniac. Just because it is hard it does not mean that you should skip on it. Here are the benefits of sleeping according to the Healthline:
Poor sleep is linked to higher body weight
Poor sleep is strongly linked to weight gain. People with short sleep duration tend to weigh significantly more than those who get adequate sleep. The hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock would be a great help. In fact, short sleep duration is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity. In one extensive review study, children and adults with short sleep duration were 89% and 55% more likely to develop obesity, respectively.
The effect of sleep on weight gain is believed to be mediated by numerous factors, including hormones and motivation to exercise as said in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review. If you’re trying to lose weight, getting quality sleep is absolutely crucial.
Good sleep can improve concentration and productivity
Sleep is important for various aspects of brain function. This includes cognition, concentration, productivity, and performance. All of these are negatively affected by sleep deprivation. The hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock would be a wonderful help with putting you to sleep. A study on medical interns provides a good example. Interns on a traditional schedule with extended work hours of more than 24 hours made 36% more serious medical errors than interns on a schedule that allowed more sleep.
Good sleep can maximize athletic performance
Sleep has been shown to enhance athletic performance. In a study on basketball players, longer sleep was shown to significantly improve speed, accuracy, reaction times, and mental well-being. Less sleep duration has also been associated with poor exercise performance and functional limitations in older women. Falling asleep with the hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock would be really helpful.
A study in over 2,800 women found that poor sleep was linked to slower walking, lower grip strength, and greater difficulty performing independent activities as said in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review
Poor sleepers have a greater risk of heart disease and stroke
Sleep quality and duration can have a major effect on many health risk factors. These are the factors believed to drive chronic diseases, including heart disease as said in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review. A review of 15 studies found that people who don’t get enough sleep are at a far greater risk of heart disease or stroke than those who sleep 7–8 hours per night.
Sleep affects glucose metabolism and types 2 diabetes risk
Experimental sleep restriction affects blood sugar and reduces insulin sensitivity. In a study in healthy young men, restricting sleep to 4 hours per night for 6 nights in a row caused symptoms of prediabetes. These symptoms resolved after one week of increased sleep duration. Poor sleep habits are also strongly linked to adverse effects on blood sugar in the general population as said in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review. Those sleeping less than 6 hours per night have repeatedly been shown to be at an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
Poor sleep is linked to depression
Mental health issues, such as depression, are strongly linked to poor sleep quality and falling asleep disorders. It’s been estimated that 90% of people with depression complain about sleep quality. Poor sleep is even associated with an increased risk of death by suicide. Those with sleeping disorders like insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea also report significantly higher rates of depression than those without. The hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock has been helpful with proper sleep patterns.
Sleep improves your immune function
Even a small loss of sleep has been shown to impair immune function. One large 2-week study monitored the development of the common cold after giving people nasal drops with the cold virus as said in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review. They found that those who slept less than 7 hours were almost 3 times more likely to develop a cold than those who slept 8 hours or more. If you often get colds, ensuring that you get at least 8 hours of sleep per night could be very helpful. Eating more garlic can help as well.
How to fall asleep naturally at night
Falling asleep at night might be a challenge but that does not mean that there’s no hope. Here are the few ways of how you can help with falling asleep naturally according to the Healthline:
Develop a sleep routine
It might seem tempting, but sleeping until noon on Saturday will only disrupt your biological clock and cause more sleep problems. Going to bed at the same time every night even on weekends, holidays, and other days off helps to establish your internal sleep/wake clock and reduces the amount of tossing and turning required to fall asleep. The hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock would be able to help you be on track.
Researchers in Northwestern University’s Department of Neurobiology and Physiology reported that previously sedentary adults who got aerobic exercise four times a week improved their sleep quality from poor to good. These former couch potatoes also reported fewer depressive symptoms, more vitality, and less sleepiness during the daytime as said as well in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review. Just be sure to wrap up your workout session several hours before bedtime so that you’re not too revved up to get a good night’s sleep.
Change your diet
Cut out the food and drinks that contain caffeine, such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, and chocolate, by mid-afternoon. Make dinner your lightest meal, and finish it a few hours before bedtime. Skip spicy or heavy foods, which can keep you awake with heartburn or indigestion. This will help you with falling asleep at ease.
A study found that smokers are four times more likely to not feel as well rested after a full night’s sleep than nonsmokers as said in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine attribute this to the stimulative effect of nicotine and the nighttime withdrawal from it. Smoking also exacerbates sleep apnea and other breathing disorders such as asthma, which can make it difficult to get restful sleep.
Say no to a nightcap
Alcohol disrupts the pattern of sleep and brainwaves that help you feel refreshed in the morning as said in a hOmeLabs Sunrise Alarm Clock review. A martini may help you doze off initially, but once it wears off, you’re likely to wake up and have a hard time getting back to sleep, according to Mayo Clinic.
