How Much Importance Do You Place on Sleep?

By Tom Herrin

Everything should have its rightful place in the scheme of things.  People have different priorities about what is significant in their lives.  As they have become increasingly able to dictate what takes precedent and how much of its share it gets, sleep seems to have lost importance to some.  It is still a critical part of maintaining overall health and well-being and should command a certain amount of consideration.  It hasn’t taken any kind of expertise to observe how much impact it has on the way people function.

Parents Always Told Their Kids to Go to Bed Early

It is no new concept for people to think that children may need more sleep to do their best.  It is known that adequate sleep can help people to focus their attention better, perform general mental functions more keenly, and improve memory.  All of these are important parts of what is needed for performance in school as well as work.  Better athletic achievement has been tied to good sleep.  Its ability to help lower stress can be a great help in school or work.  Many of the modern problems associated with student success or disability may actually be improved with quality sleep.

Some Common Sleep Disruptors

Several things are known to interfere with good sleep.  Caffeine has been associated for years as something that my disrupt sleep.  Eating habits, exercise at the wrong time, and a bad schedule in general all can add to sleep problems.  Modern electronic devices and some lighting are known to cause poor sleep.  Noise levels, room temperature, and things such as bedding materials can play a major role in encouraging or discouraging sleep.  It is often neglected but can play a large part in achieving success.

Take Control Of Your Own Issues

The best way to improve sleep is to make some decisions yourself.  Nothing can take the place of personal involvement.  You can take ownership by doing some trial and error experimenting.  Try changing your exercise to give you more time time to wind down before going to bed.  Some foods are more helpful in allowing sleep.  Avoid taking naps during the day as they often disrupt sleep.  Make some changes in your pillows, room temperature, lighting, and sound or noise levels.  Do so on at a time so you can evaluate the effectiveness as you go.  You may create a plan that works and provides you with the sleep that will improve your health.
