NEXT WEEK’S ADDED CHALLENGE: get 8 hours of sleep

5 Benefits of Sleep

1. Health: Not getting enough Z’s can compromise your immune system making you more susceptible to viruses. Plus, living in a constant state of sleep debt can contribute to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. 
2. Smarts: Even though your body is at rest, your brain is
buzzing. During sleep is when the brain sorts and processes information
you absorbed while awake. 
3. Weight Control: Recent research indicates a relationship between insufficient sleep and inability to lose or even maintain weight. 
4. Coordination: Trying new activities that require
coordination like step aerobics and playing the piano can be made more
difficult after a bad night’s sleep. 
5. Beauty: They don’t call it “beauty sleep” for nothing. While you sleep, your body repairs itself.
Experts say you need 8 hours of sleep to avoid puffy, bloodshot eyes,
as well as dark under-eye circles and a pale washed-out complexion.
