Many of the benefits of a good night’s sleep are obvious – better concentration, more energy, a happier disposition and less of a chance of becoming unwell. But other benefits are less obvious and perhaps, not as well known. For example, studies have shown that lack of sleep can slow the metabolism down which can lead to weight gain. And also that getting six or fewer hours of sleep a night resulted in a higher number of inflammatory proteins, linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis and premature aging.
