It may sound extreme but getting a greats night sleep heals you faster and keeps you healthier. While you're sleeping your body releases hormones that are responsible for the growth of tissue. Your cuts, sore muscles, and various injuries do most of their healing while you're asleep!
And Keeps You Healthy!
While you're sleeping your body produces more white blood cells. White blood cells attack things inside your body that can cause harm such as viruses and bacteria. Making sure you're getting your 8 hours of sleep may help you fight off that cold going around next time!
