5 Benefits of Getting Better Sleep, Shawano, Wisconsin

Have you ever wondered how late nights might be affecting your life? Getting better sleep has been proven to provide surprising health benefits. Zoe Zimmerman, registered nurse and massage therapist, at Zoe’s Zen Time in Shawano, WI, has shared her top reasons for tucking in a bit earlier. 

What Are the Benefits of Getting Better Sleep?

Better Health & Immunity

It’s been proven that people who get less than six hours of sleep per night are four times more likely to get sick. Those who get better sleep also decrease their chances of getting diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. 

Reduced Anxiety

Overtired people have an increased chance of feeling cranky and losing their temper, as well as a need for stimulants like coffee to remain awake. Your mood is also directly affected by sleep, as well as stress-reducing practices such as meditation, massage therapy, and exercise.

Improved Weight Control

If you’ve ever felt tired and reached for the cookie jar, you’re not alone. The hormone leptin regulates when we feel hungry or full. Without enough sleep, our leptin levels drop, making us feel hungry. Exhausted people are also more likely to reach for sugary and salty foods—the last thing you need when you’re tired.

Clearer Thinking

Getting to bed earlier will help your daily life in the long run. With better sleep, you’re naturally more able to take on problem-solving skills and daily tasks.  

Increased Chance of Safety

Without a good night’s sleep, you could be putting you and your loved ones at risk. Sleep deprivation has often been linked to disasters, including car accidents and falls. By incorporating a full night’s sleep into your routine, you’re ensuring the safety of those around you.

Getting better sleep is imperative for your overall well-being. If you’re ready to incorporate healthy choices into your daily life, Zoe’s Zen Time in Shawano County has a host of services to fit your needs, including several types of massage therapy and personal life coaching.
