3 Reasons Why It's OK to Put Sleep First

By Genevieve Cunningham

Sleep. Such a small word with absolutely gigantic impact. Unless you’ve ever done without large amounts of sleep, you may not realize just how important it is to get adequate rest. Though we know it’s important in a general sense, we often don’t make it priority enough to put it first. If you’re guilty of losing sleep and neglecting your rest, take a look at these important reasons to put sleep first in your life.

Sleep Keeps the Brain Healthy

The brain needs sleep. When we don’t get enough rest, we feel confused and lack concentration. This makes everything more difficult -- work, family life, and even personal hobbies. We simply can’t find the focus that we need to be successful. If you feel like this more often than not, it’s time to put sleep first for a change. Go to bed, get some sleep, and don’t apologize for it.

Sleep Helps Manage Moods

One of the most frustrating parts about a lack of sleep is the poor moods that come with it. Fatigue can make us extremely irritable, which obviously affects our relationships with everyone around us. If you’ve been experiencing poor moods, look first to sleeping habits. If yours are subpar, try to improve this area of your life; if you do, there’s a good chance that your moods will improve right along with it.

Sleep Promotes a Healthier Body

Sleep is a crucial part of a well functioning body. We quite literally can't live without it. A lack of sleep might slow down digestion, interrupt focus, stutter your metabolism, cause aches and pains, and bring a host of other negative side effects. If you want a healthy body, you must make sleep a top priority. A well rested body is able to function at its best and keep you feeling your best for years to come.

It’s time to stop making excuses for missing sleep. It's not good for your health -- mental, physical, or emotional. If you want to live a healthy life, you have to put sleep first. It has to be just as important as a healthy diet or regular exercise or seeing the doctor. It matters! Get more sleep. Get better sleep. Make sleep a priority, and you’ll be improving your health like never before.
