Why sleep is so important

Why sleep is so important

We always talk about sleep being important for your mental and physical wellbeing, but truly it is. If you didn’t eat for a week, then your body would suffer. Don’t get enough sleep and your brain suffers too.

Getting enough sleep can help you to:

  • Recharge
  • Process information
  • Allow your body to rest and repair
  • Feel happier
  • Think more clearly
  • Concentrate better
  • Provide you with the energy to complete tasks, and
  • Make you more alert

Need help getting to sleep?

You could:

  • Put your devices to bed at least 30 minutes before you go
  • Make sure you get some exercise during the day
  • Start and stick to a regular routine for bedtime and waking up
  • Practise quiet & soothing activities before bed
  • Avoid napping
  • Create the perfect sleeping environment
  • Stay away from dietary stimulants like sugar, coffee, coke, tea a few hours before you need to go to sleep
For more information about why you need great sleep, how to ensure you get enough (and it’s good quality), or to talk someone about sleep issues the Kids Helpline offers lots more resources, as well as ways to get in touch with an expert.
