Good reasons to get more Shut-EYE

You'll live longer

The importance of sleep is underrated, says Dr Ron McCoy, a spokesman for the Royal College of General Practitioners. Chronic insomniacs are more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who sleep well, according to research in the journal Circulation. Other studies have linked lack of sleep to a higher risk of dying from a stroke and developing breast cancer. "People say they are too busy but getting eight hours sleep can really save lives," Dr McCoy says. Doctors need to ask, "How are you sleeping - for how long and what's the quality of your sleep?"

You'll be more mentally healthy

Prof Michael Baigent, a psychiatrist and board member of BeyondBlue, says poor sleep can be an indicator of mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder and depression. "One classic pattern that can indicate depression is early morning wakening," Prof Baigent says. "This is when a person wakes up one to two hours earlier than they would like and just can't get back to sleep. One University of Sydney study of nearly 20,000 people aged 17-24 found those who slept fewer than five hours a night were three times more likely than normal sleepers to become psychologically distressed in the next year. Each hour of sleep lost was linked to a 14 percent higher risk of distress.

You'll be sharper

Skimping on rest ages your brain by four to seven years, say researchers in London. Middle-aged women who slept fewer than six hours a night tallied scores on memory, reasoning and vocabulary that resembled those of pensioners.

You'll improve your marriage

Research from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine found that women who have trouble sleeping have more negative interactions with their husbands the next day than those who don't.
