Benefits of a good night's sleep

Now that the weather is nicer than ever, most people opt to wake up early and stay up late to get the most out of each day. While deciding to go out for drink after work more often, or taking a long jog near your home each night, making sure you catch enough ZZZ's is important to your overall health for a number of reasons. The National Sleep Foundation reports adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, and if you're coming up short, there are a few tips that might change your mind.

Memory boost
Cognitive problems continue to be a hot topic around the U.S. with more cases of dementia and Alzheimer's popping up every day. Exercising and eating a well balanced diet are both crucial components in warding off these and other health conditions, but sleep is also beneficial. The experts at Health magazine report sleeping can help you learn better.

For example, if you've been practicing up on your Spanish to prepare for an upcoming Mexican vacation, it's best to study in the morning, after a great night's sleep. During rest, your mind continues to practice what you've been learning, meaning you'll be better at the task as soon as you apply your morning Bliss products like the Bliss Triple Oxygen and C Energizing Cream.

Better workout
If you've been hitting the gym or exercising outdoors to get ready for bikini season, then getting enough sleep should be the next step on your to-do list. A recent study out of Stanford University tested what effect enough sleep had on the performance of college football players. After seven to eight weeks of sleeping an average of 10 hours each night, the majority of participants benefited from improved sprint times, less daytime fatigue and increased stamina. 

On the bright side, simply exercising each day and eating right should get you more in the mood for bed than if you opted to lie around and be a couch potato.

A better body
Still need more proof? Sleeping enough each night has also been found to promote weight loss, while also helping people maintain a healthy figure. Scientists from the University of Chicago found this out after testing what effect sleep had on a group of dieters who got enough ZZZ's in comparison to those who did not.

Overall, participants who slept enough benefited from an average of 56 percent fat loss in comparison to their sleep deprived counterparts.
