5. Go to bed early
A person sleeps to recharge his or her battery. While sleeping, your muscles relax and your brain waves, heart rate and breathing slow down. All impressions and thoughts of a day are processed during the night’s rest. You can simply not squeeze this entire process in just a couple of hours. Therefore, 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night are vital.
We can also turn around the question “why is getting enough sleep so important”: what are the consequences if you sleep badly? The main consequence is that you can concentrate less the next day. As a result, you absorb new knowledge and skills less quickly. Also, the stress hormone cortisol increases. Too much cortisol can lead to type 2 diabetes in the long run. Try to get a proper rhythm where you go to bed and wake up at the same time every day.
