InstaSleep Reviews Team article notes:
- Sleep is important for workouts, reducing the risk of injury and allowing muscles to recover from exercise. Lack of sleep weakens the immune system, making people more likely to become sick — which means missing workouts.
- Going to bed late, particularly if you’re using electronic devices and sitting under bright lights before bedtime, shifts the body’s circadian rhythms later. People still need around eight hours of sleep per night.
