A Simple Way to Boost Immune System
Strengthening your immune system should be one of your many goals. If you are mindful enough, you will be able to stop illnesses from coming to you because of the great defense you build in your body. Although there are many ways that you can boost your immune system, one of the simplest ways is to get enough sleep.
We’ll talk about enough sleeping time you need and when is the best time to have it.
From the statement of Eric J. Olson, a medical doctor, kids need to have at least 9-11 hours of sleeping time. Keep that in mind because building your immune system at such an early age will be very vital when growing up. But does the habit stop when we become adults? No! Adults also need an adequate time of sleep. On average, we need to have at least 7-9 hours of sleeping time. This is very important especially for adults because we are the ones who do a lot of tasks inside and outside of the house. Getting that sleep is like building an inside armor to protect you from getting sick.
According to a 2018 study of more than 10,000 people, the body's ability to function declines if sleep isn't in the seven to the eight-hour range. Seven to eight hours of sleep per night is needed to perform your best at communicating.
As much as it is important to know how much time you need to put in sleeping, it is also equally important to know WHEN the best time to invest it is.
Ideally, people ought to go to bed earlier and wake up in the early morning hours. This pattern matches our biological tendencies to adapt our sleep pattern with that of the sun. You might find that you’re naturally sleepier after sundown. The National Sleep Foundation suggests it’s best to fall asleep sometime between 8 p.m. and midnight. The exact time depends on when you tend to wake up in the morning. Another consideration is the amount of sleep you need per night. (Health line, Best Time to Sleep and Wake Up)
But for those who do not have the luxury to have that kind of sleeping schedule, it is very important to keep in mind that you need to be consistent with your sleeping pattern.
Sleeping is very simple yet neglected by many because of many distractions. But you need to remember that the more you get yourself used to this simple habit of getting adequate sleep, you can see better results on your life’s productivity.
