All experts agreed that, like good nutrition and moderate physical exercise, a good night’s sleep should be a fundamental habit for physical, mental and social well-being.
Neuroscience research found that having a good quality sleep time is a pivotal factor for healthier life.
According to specialists, a sufficient number of sleeping hours should be perfect for a satisfactory quality of sleep, so this day is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of sleeping and fighting misconceptions.
Therapists pointed out that a person should sleep the necessary amount, no more and no less. An adult should sleep from seven and eight hours.
Regularity is also important, going to bed in the same bed and every day at the same time, that is, resting at night, since brain and body are programmed to do so.
Sleeping in daytime (when one should be awake and alert), does not compensate for the lack of night rest.
In fact, psychiatric illnesses are often associated with sleep disorders, but a quality sleep is not only essential for mental health, it plays a key role in metabolic diseases and several chronic conditions.
