Quality Sleep Patterns May Protect Against Infectious Diseases

Updated: Sep 13, 2022

Not getting enough sleep is known to affect your health. It can trigger anxiety and worsen your immune system's response to infection. It can also slow down your recovery time and interfere with your body's natural healing process.


Sleep and Immune Function


Your body fights infection by producing various proteins known as cytokines. When exposed to pathogens, these chemicals boost the production of these cytokines to counteract illness. Getting less sleep can also affect this process.


Your irregular sleep patterns can signal that your body is already fighting against infection. Getting less sleep can also slow down your immune response and make it harder to fight back. If you're already feeling sick, getting plenty of rest can help nourish your body.


Healthy Sleep Habits


Getting enough sleep is important for a healthy immune system. Studies show that people are not getting enough quality sleep. Good sleep hygiene routines can help nourish and maintain a healthy sleep environment. They can also help you avoid experiencing the effects of stress on your body.


TIPS FOR IMPROVING YOUR SLEEP HYGIENE


  • Maintain a consistent sleep schedule. Go to bed and wake up around the same time every day—even on the weekends.


  • Exposure to artificial light can stimulate or stop your body from sleeping. It helps to fall asleep when you are outside most of the day.


  • Getting active helps you feel alert and better sleep, and it can help keep you up late. However, staying active at night can make it harder to fall asleep.


  • Heavy meals and alcohol can make it hard for you to fall asleep. Also, caffeine can increase your chances of getting back up.


  • Naps can boost your immunity and improve cognitive performance. Ideally, take 15 to 30 minutes each day. However, napping later in the day can disrupt your ability to fall asleep. Avoid late afternoon or evening naps.


  • Before going to bed, avoid activities that can stimulate anxiety or distract you. Some of these include watching the news and paying bills.


  • Slow down and practice mindfulness to reduce stress. Light stretching before bed can help you get better sleep.

Although these tips may help improve sleep, they may not work for everyone. It is important to remember that everyone is different.


Most people can experience sleeping problems, they can be caused by various health conditions. If the quality of their sleep does not improve, it is time to talk to their doctor about their condition. Proper sleep hygiene can help you get the most out of your night’s sleep. It can also help minimize your risk of illness.
