While many people are burning the candle at both ends, a growing body of scientific research shows that getting regular restful sleep is essential to our physical and emotional health. You can find helpful tips on creating a restful sleep routine at the Chopra Center’s online library.
1) During sleep, the body repairs and regenerates tissues, builds bone and muscle and strengthens the immune system.
2) Not sleeping well is associated with a number of serious medical issues, including high blood pressure, obesity, heart attack, stroke and mood disorders.
3) Restful sleep also plays a role in maintaining our memory and learning.
