Why Is Sleep Important?
Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life.
During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development.
Studies show that a good night's sleep improves learning. Sleep also helps you pay attention, make decisions, and be creative.
The damage from sleep deficiency can occur in an instant (such as a car crash), or it can harm you over time. For example, ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others.
