The Art of Beauty Sleep
Hello to all my glamorous people! I want today’s topic a little different- just short and sweet. However this is a major impact to your lifestyle and should be done routinely. As of now, I am finishing up my last year in college at a California State University. I am planning to finish with my entire class curriculum by the end of winter. Literally, winter is coming for me.
Unlike most colleges, my university runs alongside quarter system. A quarter system means the whole school season is condensed to around 10 weeks of school. Now that regular 15+ weeks of the semester system seems really nice huh? Since professors only have 10 weeks, the classes are running extremely fast. A lot of work gets compiled and it’s very time consuming for most students, me especially.
With this system, most students are running on at least four hours of sleep per night. Try balancing a short quarter system and keeping up with work, classes, and other curriculum activities within the two months. Yet, the lack of sleep can drastically affect the way they think, focus on studies, and their overall performance in both school and work life. This is obviously not healthy for anyone’s well-being.
A lot of people are slowly starting to forget the importance of sleep and how it affects the mind and body in positive way. Research studies show that getting at least eight hours of sleep per day will result in a lot positive impacts on your daily life.
When you retain that beauty sleep, you’re less stressed and have an open and clear mind for the rest of the day. It affects your appearance as well. You prevent pre-mature wrinkles (around the forehead, under-eyes, sides of your nose and mouth, etc.) and slow down the signs of aging on your face. You also prevent acne from appearing on your face and risks of scarring. Overall, your face will achieve that glowy complexion and your whole body and mind feels rejuvenated.
On my opinion, since around 90% of us do not have the luxury of getting that beautiful eight hour nap, here’s a suggestion. Try to get at least six hours of deep sleep and use the remaining two hours for power naps throughout the day.
There are so many benefits on why getting enough sleep is extremely important, and I could go on forever on how important it is to get that beauty sleep. But the overall lesson is that to have a good night’s sleep is to have a healthy body, mind, and heart for the rest of your life. And that, my glamorous people, is the art and truth of it all.
