Sleep Well And Lead A Healthy Life

Who does not love to sleep? Having a good sleep, especially during nights, is bliss. In earlier times, people were not giving importance to sleep. Now, thanks to several researches conducted, many people have realized how important it is to have 7 to 8 hours of sleep daily. Let us look at the benefits we can derive from a good night's sleep.

The health conditions of those who are already affected by blood pressure-related ailments and cholesterol, are found to be negatively impacted due to lack of sleep. But, the health of the heart will be maintained in a good condition if the person ensures to have a sleep of 7 to 9 hours.

- A good night's sleep can even prevent cancer. Especially, nowadays, incidence of breast cancer among ladies is on the rise. It can be prevented if ladies make sure to sleep sufficiently during nights. Similarly, by having a good sleep during nights, colon cancer can also be prevented. Melatonin that is released during sleep has powers to suppress tumor-growth.

- By sleeping regularly during nights, you can manage your stress levels also. But, if you avoid sleeping, stress levels increase and this may cause blood pressure-related problems. This may lead to heart attacks. You should learn to relax your limbs, mind and muscles for getting a good sleep. Meditation, breathing exercises and yoga can help you to relax and have a good sleep.
