If you want to look and feel youthful, first start by addressing your sleep schedule. With the technology and various other forms of distractions available to us these days, it’s no wonder we’re sleeping on average less than we did a century ago. However, that is most certainly not a statistic to be proud of.
Studies have shown that people whose sleep sessions are irregular or short are at a higher risk of deadly diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. Poor sleep may also have effects on the brain such as dementia, Alzheimer's, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and anxiety. These effects obviously shorten our life expectancy and really take a toll on our body. To prevent that and feel like you found the Fountain of Youth, focus on sleeping better.
