Why healthy sleep is king

The World Health Organization has mentioned good sleep as a key health criterion. Sleep deprivation makes a ruining effect on the immune system, leaving a person vulnerable to infections. Due to lack of sleep, the body produces excess amounts of the hormone ghrelin, which is responsible for the feeling of hunger, increasing the risk of obesity. Mood and performance also directly depend on the quality of sleep.

Determinants of healthy sleep

It is not only the quantity of sleep that matters, its quality does run the show. How can one improve it? In order to fall asleep quickly as well as sleep well, the air in the bedroom is to be fresh and not dry. A humidifier is the best option, it will serve to maintain an optimal level of humidity. In addition, a comfortable bed together with high-quality bedding can make the difference. You’d better opt for natural fabrics such as cotton, silk or linen. The quality of mattress, also, should not be overlooked, since the wrong choice can lead to restless sleep, chronic neurosis and even problems with the backbone and back.
