It's easy to see just how important a good night's sleep is to our wellbeing. Anyone who has had to drag themselves to work after a sleepless night can attest to that connection. But what about overall health? Scientists are continually uncovering more evidence connecting the quality of sleep one gets with their overall health.
According to an article on the Mayo clinic's website, our immune systems recharge when we sleep. People who don't sleep well are more likely to comedown with an illness when exposed to it. This is something we all try to avoid during any normal cold and flu season, and with COVID, this year is certainly anything but a normal cold and flu season.
The Mayo Clinic piece goes on to recommend that the average adult get 7-10 hours of sleep. Teenagers generally need 9 - 10 and younger kids can need more than 10.
It's also important to not confuse quantity of sleep with quality. Getting 10 hours of non-recuperative sleep is worse than getting 7 hours of restful sleep. The first step to getting good sleep is having a quality mattress.
