Scientists from the Pacific American Medical Center in California found that poor sleep quality can significantly age the body and “steal” about five years of a person’s life.
Researchers are sure that the quality of sleep is more important than its quantity — healthy and sound sleep is necessary for human health.
Among the factors that can affect the quality of sleep, experts call the following:
Constant worries and endless nervous tension, in the end, depress the immune system and weaken the body’s defenses. As a result, sleep becomes restless and superficial.
Natural processes in the body are violated when a certain daily routine is not observed and bad habits are abused. Sleeping late, drinking alcohol at night, or overeating in the evening can lead to sleep disturbance.
Both physical and mental fatigue can lead to chronic insomnia due to overexcitation in various parts of the brain.
Living in an area with a lack of green areas, as well as polluted air, can lead to oxygen starvation and, accordingly, a deterioration in the quality of sleep.
Uncomfortable sleep conditions
The quality of sleep directly depends on the comfort that a person experiences when going to sleep. Inadequate sleep can be caused by dust in the room, too dry air in the bedroom, or an uncomfortable bed. Experts advise to ventilate the sleeping area before going to bed, regularly carry out wet cleaning and purchase a comfortable mattress.
