Most of us know how important quality sleep is. After all, it is the key to well-being throughout the day and generally has a positive effect on the body. But have you ever wondered how much sleep you need per day to stay old? The aging process is accompanied by the appearance of various chronic diseases and senile ailments.

So, according to Professor of Psychiatry Chris Fox, the optimal duration of a night's sleep is eight hours. At the same time, he does not recommend cutting the time for sleep, because he claims that every minute is important. The modern rhythm of life, unfortunately, often makes this condition impossible. But for constant daily activity, the body needs to rest. If you plan your day correctly, you will not only be able to get enough sleep, but you will also realize that you have much more free time than it may seem.

Chris Fox also believes that a good night's sleep helps to avoid many diseases that are difficult to cure, such as Parkinson's disease. And all because in a dream our body undergoes a complete recovery. So, when there is not enough sleep, important parts of the brain may not have time to reboot and it will begin to work beyond its capacity.

With a full eight hours of sleep a night, it is also possible to maintain an attractive appearance. During sleep, the body gets rid of toxins. This is important both for the functioning of the body as a whole and for the elasticity and shine of the skin. If the body cannot get rid of the toxins that we have accumulated during the day, you run the risk of seeing rashes, more pronounced wrinkles, and inflammation in the mirror in the morning.

For quality sleep, be sure to consider the atmosphere of your bedroom. Analyze what exactly helps you fall asleep faster. It could be calm music, reading a book, or even your favorite pajamas. It is very important that the room is not illuminated by either natural or artificial light. Only by reaching complete darkness can you create a pleasant atmosphere for the brain to fall asleep and get rid of insomnia.
