Sleep is essential to health. It has many important functions, yet it is often undervalued. Research suggests that sleep help us:
- Prevent illness
- Reduce pain
- Store memories
- Stabilize mood
- Heal ourselves
Sleep quality is just as important as quantity. Even if you get plenty of sleep, sleep disorders may damage your sleep quality. Low-quality sleep is not as effective in its role of repairing and reviving the body. Some sleep disorders increase risks of major health issues, such as heart attacks and strokes. Sleep disorders can be serious health problems that should be addressed promptly.
