Studies also show that most of our illnesses, including heart stroke, obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure are caused due to inapt body rest. So, no more excuses. If we really want to live healthy, we should change our sleeping habits. Fix your time to go to sleep and wake up per day. And maintain the same even in the weekends. Doing this, we will build strong napping desire required for deep sleep. A power nap helps maintain good cytokine stores that further aid in boosting alertness, thereby ensuring mental well-being. Cykotines are proteins/peptides that regulate immunity, inflammation and blood formation in the body. So, try to take your beauty sleep always and stay away from getting sick.
