Has your sleep schedule changed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic? Does your sleep schedule change frequently? Why is it important to maintain a regular sleep schedule and a daily routine? Find out in this article.
Sleep is important for our health. It has been known to increase mood, sharpen memory and attention, lower stress, and enhance exercise performance. Have you noticed that you have a more productive day when you have a good sleep? It’s not a coincidence, but rather a result of the direct effect that sleep has on productivity and motivation. On the other hand, not reaching the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night can have a negative long-term effect on your health by increasing irritability, anxiety, and risk for chronic illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
In addition to getting enough sleep, maintaining a daily routine benefits your physical and mental health. A regular routine actually improves sleep quality, reduces stress and helps ensure you have more time to do the things you enjoy.
A healthy routine should also include time to plan and make healthy meals, and to schedule in time for regular exercise. Doing so will help improve your overall health, reduce risk for chronic illnesses, and improve motivation and self-esteem.
The following tips for maintaining a regular sleep schedule and routine can help improve your overall health.
