Plymouth Terrace Discusses Why Sleep is so Important as We Age

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Michimich -- Getting a good night's sleep is harder as we age and can lead to serious health issues if not treated properly. Make sure you consult your doctor if you're having a hard time sleeping through the night.

It's important to make sleep a priority because it improves your overall well-being:

Lower risk for diseases: Getting more sleep can lower your risk for diabetes and heart disease.

Boost your immune system: More sleep can help your body fight off viruses and infections.

More self-control:  You're more likely to make unhealthy lifestyle choices when you're sleep-deprived. Finding motivation to exercise when you're tired can be tough, but when you're well-rested, you may feel more energized to get that work out, walk, or yoga session in.

Refresh your mind and body: Sleep gives your mind and body an opportunity to rest and restore. This can help minimize inflammation, regulate your digestive system, and allow your brain to recharge.

Increased energy:  Getting enough sleep will give you more energy. It helps you stay active and engaged with life, which helps give you a positive outlook and good mood boost!
