Why Sleep is Important
Aside from the scientific facts why sleep is so important for all the living beings I have my very own reasons.
First reason is creativity – with no sleep and drained energy creativity just cannot exist, or maybe it can but in very small amounts. I personally cannot think of ANYTHING creative when I don’t get enough sleep.
An energized mind wants to jump from one place to another and go into the depths of the universe and explore our very origin. A drained mind wants to go get a nice, puffy blanket and sleep right on the chair because it is too tired to drag itself into the bed.
Second reason is attitude. With little to no sleep my attitude is equal to that of a capricious, teenage girl who stomps her foot on the floor and complains all the time.
I am not very friendly or sociable if I don’t get my 6 – 8 hours of sleep. This could affect me in so many ways. What if that particular day, right in the morning I meet the girl of my dreams or I meet someone who works at a place where I also really want to work at. If I mess it up guess who I am going to blame? That’s right my alarm clock.
But jokes aside, it is really important that you are acting and behaving your best at any time – and sleep is a key in the mornings.
Third and last reason is recuperation. This one is very important for me since I am myself an athlete and every day I don’t recover just simply takes me one step back from my progress.
Every time I recover after sleep I feel like a badass sci-fi character. Think about it for a moment? How amazing is the fact that you don’t know what’s going on during the recovery process but once you sleep and wake up it is done and ready for you? It is so fascinating to me.
It does not matter if you cut your finger. It does not matter if you worked out extra hard and all of your muscles are sore, and it does not matter if your girlfriend dumped you, then got back with you and dumped you after 5 minutes again (even though I feel really bad if that happened to you). All you have to do is go to sleep – because tomorrow is a new day waiting for you all recovered and ready to go!
So get your sleep ladies and gentlemen!
