Appropriate to the subject of “restful good night sleep” I’ve found some suitable sleep quotes. As most of you might know, I love inspirational sayings, as they put essential thoughts in a nutshell.
Here are some beautiful picture quotes about sleep I’ve created for you. Feel free to share them with your family and friends.
“Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.” – Thomas Dekker
Men have conceived a twofold use of sleep; it is a refreshing of the body in this life,
and a preparing of the soul for the next.” – John Donne
“Sleep is the best meditation.” – Dalai Lama
But there is more…
- The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night’s sleep. – E. Joseph Cossman
- Fatigue is the best pillow. – Benjamin Franklin
- No day is so bad it can’t be fixed with a nap. – Carrie Snow
- A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book. – Irish Proverb
- Time, motion and wine cause sleep. – Ovid
All these sleeping quotes demonstrate the powerful health effect of rest on our body and mind. Nothing supplies you with more energy for your working day than waking up well rested in the morning. People that don’t sleep enough only demonstrate bad time management.
Sleep deprivation threatens your health and well-being
Those who are always over-tired risk more frequent accidents and are more susceptible to disease. Different studies could prove that the immune system shows signs of weakness if humans sleep less than 7 hours a day over a longer period of time. They catch a cold almost 3 times as often as those with 8 hours of sleep or more per night.
Mid-aged people who sleep five hours or less regularly develop a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity, and the risk of death is doubled.
Five Hours of sleep is the absolute minimum
Many different scientific studies come to the same conclusion that you shouldn’t fall below a time limit of 5 hours of sleep each night.
If you sleep less than 5 hours per night then you narrow down your deep sleep phases which is crucial for your recreation value. Even an afternoon nap can’t balance out this deprivation.
How to get sleep
