WhatsApp Status, the new feature lets its user upload photos and videos overlaid with drawings, emojis and a caption for their contacts to see, instead of a simple text-based status message that will be visible to selected friends for 24 hours, before disappearing. This feature must be sounding similar to you, doesn’t it?

10 Reasons Life Gets better When You Sleep Early

We all know that sleep makes us feel fresh in the morning. But the benefits of sleeping early is way beyond just boosting your mood or banishing your under-eye circles. Adequate amount of sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle, and can benefit your mind, heart, body and much more.

Below are the reasons which tells us why we should sleep early:

1) Improves our memory

Studies have shown that while we sleep, our brains process and consolidate our memories from the day. If you don’t sleep for enough time, there is a chance that some of the memories get lost. Some more research suggests that sleep decreases the chances of developing false memories.

2) Slows Aging and Makes You Live Longer

It is said that you can have a shorter lifespan if you sleep too much or too little.

Going to bed early not only will make you look and feel younger, but also will extend your life expectancy. A poor night’s sleep results in wrinkles and dark under-eye circles, which adds a few years even to a young face.

3) Stronger immunity

Having enough sleep won’t guarantee you having a better mood. But you have probably noticed that when you’re exhausted, you’re more likely to be cranky. It is also said that sleep affects your emotional regulation.

 5) Sharpen attention

A lack of sleep in children can result in many mental problems. Where adults gets sleepy and dull due to lack of sleep, kids are more likely to get hyperactive, inattentive, and impulsive.

6) Beauty From Within

Cosmetics can do miracles for your skin, but if you want to boost your health and beauty from within, you need not invest in such products. It is truly said that going to bed early can be very beneficial for the skin as during this time your skin is hard working hard for rejuvenating and refreshing itself.

7) Helps In Weight Control

Getting enough sleep could help you maintain your weight — and conversely, sleep loss goes along with an increased risk of weight gain. Some people who diet and exercise but still struggle to lose their weight can blame their quality of sleep.

Also, when we stay awake until late, we tend to feel hungry.Researchers have found that dieters who were well rested lost more fat than those who were sleep deprived, who lost more muscle mass.

8) More Energy

You must have come across a person who works late night (i.e., night-shift workers). Such people usually sleep in the daytime. You can notice such people are less energetic and active than the other people.  Kathy R. Gromer, M.D., of the Minnesota Sleep Institute says that those who get their shut-eye during the day often end up sleeping in two or three long “naps,” instead of experiencing a continuous, deep REM-sleep phase, which may cause them to feel blah the next day.

9) Healthier Heart

According to researchers people in a study who went to bed after midnight were found to have significantly more arterial stiffening (an early sign of heart disease) than those who climbed into bed at earlier hours.

10) Caffeine Avoided

 “Caffeine has a 10-hour half life—meaning, it’s only half gone 10 hours after you drink it,” says Gromer. Go to bed earlier and you may be able to cut yourself free from the caffeine loop—and even save a few bucks while you’re at it.
