Guys, we can’t stress how important it is to make sure you get enough sleep. A lot of us suffer from sleeping disorders and insomnia, but we are not cognitive of it and we don’t bother looking into this. Long-term effects from loss of sleep include increased risk of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, as well as a weakened immune system. Not to mention the negative effects on the brain and mental health. Make sure you’re all getting enough sleep!

我們無法強調確保充足的睡眠有多重要。許多人都患有睡眠障礙和失眠的困擾,但我們都沒有意識到這件事,也不會對這點多加留意。睡眠不足長期的影響包含了增加呼吸道疾病以及心血管疾病的風險,甚至會削弱免疫系統能力,更不用說對大腦和心理健康的負面影響了。記得要確保自己擁有充足的睡眠!
