Moreover, receiving at least 7.5 hours of quality sleep each night significantly reduces the risk of injury (soft tissue). Sleep directly enhances an individual’s learning ability, memory, and retention. Research shows that learning ability of sleep deprived individuals reduced by 40% compared to these who have >8 hours sleep. Sleep also plays a key role in brain and body functionality, overall health, and the functioning of the immune system. Research has shown that reduced sleep hours, vital immune functions that fight off disease and cancerous cells, infections are diminished by up to 70%.
