Why we heart sleep

 
 
BTS time is almost here, and you can’t stay up every night with your besties in a couple weeks. Sure, there aren't any tests or teachers in the mornings now. But here are seven good reasons why ya still need your beauty sleep to get back on track, babe.

 

More memory muscle

Sleep helps ya remember stuff. But what do you need to remember in the summer? Info on that new summer job you’re eying, what time you’re meetin’ your bestie for lunch next Friday, the phone number of the cutie that just moved in down the street… pretty vital stats.

 

Get creative!

Experts at Harvard University and Boston College have found connections between getting enough sleep and creative abilities. So since summer is the time when you should be workin’ on those projects that ya had to set aside during the school year, why not make ‘em the best they can be? Get at least eight hours of sleep every night so you can put the finishing touches on your artwork, or write that song you’ve had drifting around in your head for months.

 

Improve athletics

You don’t have to push yourself for competitions over the summer, but you still wanna look good in a bikini, right? Getting enough sleep will give you more energy for working out and for being active in that beautiful sunshine.

 

Kick the klutziness

When you’re dozing during class, you usually get snapped back to attention by your head hitting the desk, but in the summer, you’re not just stuck behind a desk all day. You’re working outside or going places, so if you’re not awake and focused, you could get yourself into some real trouble.

 

Keep metabolism in check

If you’re not gettin’ enough sleep, hunger is gonna be your new BFF. Metabolism is right next door to sleep in your brain, so if you’re missin’ out on your zzz’s, you’re gonna start vamping up the snackage. And that is not a good sign for your bikini bod.

 

Chill out

You’re less likely to get stressed and irritated if you’re well rested. Since ya prob don’t wanna be grumpin’ around all summer, you should think about hittin’ the hay a li’l early this summer. It’ll improve your mood overall, so even rainy days won’t get ya down.

 

Make the most of the day

Sure, the sun is hangin’ around longer every day, but it stills shows up bright and early. So instead of having marathon snooze sessions to catch up on all that sleep you’ve been skippin’, get out there and get active. You’ll have more time in the day to see your sistahs or make some extra cash at your summer job if you can get yourself out of bed before noon.
