What is deep sleep?
Deep sleep is when one feels completely relaxed getting up after. One’s body requires deep sleep everyday in order to function properly.
When one’s body tires up after working all the day, to feel relaxed afterwards deep sleep is something what body craves for.
But why do people don’t take care of deep sleep? The answer to this question is pretty simple. It isn’t like they don’t don’t care, it is like they do not pay attention to it.
Everyone is on their mobile phones most of the time in the day. The blue light coming out of it is something which causes problem in having a deep sleep.
The point here which arises and is really something which should be fixed is the thought process of an individual. No one is thinking of the long term side effects of it.
Mostly teens these days are on their mobile phones for hours and mostly at night. This causes a biological imbalance in one’s sleep cycle. One’s mind find it difficult to differentiate between day and night resulting in an improper sleep.
Even studies show that people who are mostly busy in doing something especially in mobile phones and usually till late night are mostly short tempered.
Such people get impatient not only during the day time but during sleep too. They tend to have more dreams than the ones who have a good sleep.
Their subconscious mind used to frame the things which one saw throughout the day through the peripheral vision. Hence, making the resting period that is sleep more of a working period.
This is because their subconscious mind is still working while the whole body resting.
Why is sleep so important?
Deep sleep is very important if one is looking for making his/her day most productive. It relaxes our muscles and mind, detoxes our body and gives a refreshing feel the next morning one wakes up.
An ideal sleep is of 8 hours irrespective of age. But do we really require this much of sleep? The answer is simply no. It depends on person to person.
If your daily schedule is lite and you don’t have much of physically and mentally challenging work, then you might only need a 6 hours of sleep.
But on the contrary, if your daily work is challenging along with your diet and physically requiring needs, then you might even need a 9 hour of sound sleep.
So, one needs to make this call of assigning sleep time to oneself as it depends upon person to person.
