Well-known longevity doctor Neil Polvin claims that lack of sleep leads not only to weakened immunity, but also to premature aging.

In the column for CNBC he said that aging can be divided into two categories: internal and external. The internal is determined by genetic factors, but the external can be influenced by a person’s lifestyle and bad habits.

According to Polvin, poor quality sleep is the No. 1 mistake that causes people to age faster because quality sleep is the key to a healthy life. “When we sleep, the body restores itself. Sleeping for seven to eight hours a day helps to improve the health of cells and tissues, cognitive functions, immunity, energy levels and metabolism. Meanwhile, lack of sleep can cause a number of health problems , including high blood pressure, depression, obesity, stroke, diabetes and heart disease,” he writes.

The doctor gave several tips, the observance of which will help you improve the quality of sleep:

  • Try to stick to a consistent sleep schedule.
  • Go out into the morning sun immediately after waking up.
  • Limit caffeine and alcohol: Avoid caffeine eight hours before bedtime and alcohol three hours before bedtime.
  • Limit screen time before bed, as exposure to blue light from devices negatively affects sleep.
  • Create a relaxing bedtime routine.
  • Buy a good mattress, bedding, eye masks, and other things that will help you relax.
  • How dangerous is lack of sleep

    Previously, a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, John Klein, told what happens to a person’s body when he does not sleep for a day or more.

    According to him, a person’s brain suffers already after 24 hours without sleep, and at the 72nd hour without sleep, hallucinations begin.
