These are the terrible effects & 5 tips to prevent sleep deprivation for adults Lifestyle – 13 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Sleep is one of the most important activities in human life. However, people often ignore the importance of getting enough sleep every day.

It turns out, for those aged 18 to 60 years, experts state that the ideal sleep time for them is at least 7 hours every night. This is based on the United States (US) National Health Institute, as quoted from CNN Health, Saturday (21/10/2023).

Sleeping for 7 to 9 hours encourages the immune system in the body. So, your tendency to get sick will be reduced and recovery will also be faster if you are sick.

Meanwhile, sleeping less than 6 hours suppresses your body’s immune system. In addition, lack of sleep increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke and depression.

Getting 7-9 hours of sleep every night can also improve your memory. Because, dreams are consolidated while you sleep.

It’s different if you sleep 6 hours or less. Your memory will be difficult to store and connect with the brain when you lack sleep.

Not only that, getting enough sleep also affects your mood. High-quality sleep can improve mood and feelings of well-being. Meanwhile, lack of sleep makes you tend to be temperamental, anxious or depressed.

Furthermore, according to the Nurses Health Study, women who lack sleep, namely only sleeping for 5 hours or less, have a 15% higher risk of becoming obese.

Here are tips to improve your sleep quality:

First, exercise regularly.

Second, stay away from eating large portions and smoking at night.

Third, create a relaxing bedtime ritual with time to unwind.

Fourth, go to bed and wake up at the same time on weekends.

Fifth, keep your room cool, dim and noise-free.
