You love to work at night, eating chips at the computer, and chatting with single sleepless individuals in social networks. You think that the moon is a part of your personality when reflected in your coffee and that only mediocre people and hosts of morning talk shows go to bed at ten in the evening. You think that the bags under the eyes give you theatrical delicacy and the greenish skin makes you closer to the elves from the works by JRR Tolkien.
You’re wrong. Lack of sleep culture deprives you of health, creative potential and time. It gives you nothing. It does not help you stand out from the crowd.
Geniusbeauty.com has collected seven reasons for you to go to bed before 10 PM.
10 pm to 3 am – it is during this period of time that the most important hormones are produced in the body. The hormones that retain your youth, spur creative thinking, and preserve your fertility. Every moment of being awake at this time is a potential dollar in the pocket of a plastic surgeon.
2. Top managers
Most eminent managers (if you are a fan of specific examples: Dan Akerson, Bob Iger) wake up at five in the morning. To wake up at five in the morning and not to poke your eye out with a toothbrush, you need to go to sleep early. For example, at 10 PM.
Vedic medicine insists that an ideal woman should be asleep at nine o’clock. The lunar energy is very active at this time; being awake, you cannot “absorb” it. It may sound silly, but who knows…
4. Nervous system
And now some more official science. Your central nervous system has just two hours for recreation. And it’s not from four to six in the morning, as you want, but from ten to midnight – as your neighbors and pensioners would prefer.
5. Double effect
Every hour of your sleep from ten to midnight has a twice stronger effect on your body. So if you have an opportunity to fall asleep for just a couple of hours, now you know what to choose.
6. Steve Jobs’s Oncologist
This is a key argument. Heavy artillery. David Agus, who successfully treated Jobs from pancreatic cancer (contrary to predictions, Steve had lived with the severe diagnosis as much as 7 years), said going to bed early is one of the key ways to safeguard health.
Another guarantee is physical activity. But we will talk about it in the next article.
