We believe it’s very important to keep an eye on different findings about our well-being and can’t wait to share this info with our readers. Here are 12 thing that happens to your body if you sleep 8 hours every day.

1. You may prevent the development of diabetes.

Research has found that sleep makes a big difference in regulating blood sugar and sensitivity to insulin and as a result, preventing type 2 diabetes. It seems that the “deep” stage of sleep is especially critical for this and if you shorten your sleeping time, you are very likely to skip that important part.

2. You will learn new things quicker.

If you don’t get enough sleep, it has an effect on how well you can concentrate on new skills and remember new things. Scientists found that we process new information while sleeping. In other words, your mind and body are better in the morning after you’ve had a proper rest, than before you hit the pillow the night before. And this applies to any new skills, from university studying to playing a new sport. Show More >>>
