Sleeping not only serves to regain energy or rest, sleep WELL and in an adequate way and without interruptions, is also essential for the proper functioning of our body. For this reason, if you have a bad sleep routine or have a disorder such as sleep apnea that prevents adequate rest, it can increase the probability of suffering from different diseases (diabetes, heart disease, hypertension). Also, lack of sleep can weaken your immune system, making you more exposed to viruses and bacteria, and harder for the body to recover.
Not sleeping well can affect our day to day, due to sudden changes in behavior such as decreased attention span, poor memory, irritability, excessive drowsiness, bad mood.
For this reason, the adequate number of hours of sleep in adults is 8 hours and in children 10 hours.
