National Sleep Awareness Week

National Sleep Awareness Week is almost here. Take time during this week to educate your clients on the benefits of deep, restful sleep. Getting enough sleep at night is extremely important for feeling rested in the morning and having enough energy to get through your day. While specific activities influence the amount of sleep you need, there are several aspects of sleep apply to everyone. Let’s take a look at the importance of restful sleep, REM, and napping (yes adults should nap too)!

Benefits of Restful Sleep

While you are sleeping your mind is still running a million miles an hour. In fact, through a process called consolidation, you are strengthening the memories that you acquired while you were awake; this means restful sleep will improve your overall memory functions. Not only does restful sleep help strengthen your memory it also reduces inflammation, providing overall health benefits and prevention.

Benefits of REM: Rapid Eye Movement

National Sleep Awareness Week focuses on the importance of REM sleep, otherwise known as rapid eye movement. It is during REM sleep that these movements occur. Your body will enter REM sleep about 90 minutes after you have fallen asleep. REM sleep is not constant and recurs several times throughout the night, with each REM cycle becoming longer. The benefits of REM sleep are:

  • Renews your mind
  • Improves mood
  • Increases ability to clearly think throughout the day
  • Strengthen your memory
  • Replenishes dopamine and serotonin levels

Benefits of Naps

Did you know more than 85 percent of mammals take naps throughout the day? Humans are one of the few mammal species that divides its days into two distinct periods, one for sleeping and one for staying awake. The truth is, both young children and the elderly are well known for taking naps, and evidence backs the benefits that napping provides. Five of the most notable benefits of taking a nap are:

  • Enhance physical performance
  • Improve mood
  • Improve alertness
  • Reverses information overload
  • Improves memory
