Your Immune System and Sleep
A healthy immune system is a by-product of a healthy lifestyle — regular sleep, a healthy diet, no smoking, exercise on a regular basis and good stress-busting mechanisms all contribute to your health.
Getting enough sound sleep has a profound impact on your stress levels, immune function and disease resistance. A chronic lack of sleep can leave you feeling sluggish, irritable, forgetful, accident-prone, and have difficulty concentrating or coping with life's daily aggravations, says the website Holisticonline.com. Long-term sleep loss can also result in heart disease, stroke, hypertension, depression, and anxiety.
Sleep time is when your body and immune system do most of its repairs and rejuvenation. So, get some sleep! Everybody's needs are different when it comes to sleep. But, whatever your personal sleep requirement is, get it!
