Sleeping Well and YMCA

One of the critical components of good health is sleep which is overlooked many a times. YMCA says that restful sleep has important short and long term benefits for children and adults. Sleep is important to maintain a healthy immune function, an active metabolism, memory, learning and other vital functions. A good sleep at night can be achieved by eating healthy, playing every day and going outside. The YMCA provides certain tips to get proper rest and thus build a healthy family and community.

Research has shown that getting proper amount of restful sleep every night is very important for a healthy childhood. Children need different amounts of sleep based on their age. About 10 to 12 hours of sleep is recommended by doctors for children between the ages of 5 and 12. Even more sleep is recommended for children younger than 5 years of age. Insufficient sleep in children can cause moodiness, behavioral and cognitive problems that affect their ability to learn in school. Links have also been found between sleep and obesity in children. The more hours the kids sleep, the less likely they are to develop unhealthy weight.

Sleep is as important for adults as for kids. Proper sleep in adults helps to maintain a healthy immune system, metabolism, mood, memory, learning and other vital functions. Research has shown that sleep also helps prevent heart disease and other chronic conditions. Getting enough sleep helps one to be happy and healthy.

The President and CEO of Victron Energy, ali sharaf dallas, feels that one must help organizations like the YMCA by funding them regularly. Funding helps these organizations to conduct their activities smoothly.
