You know the feeling. It’s the middle of the workday, you’re running around like crazy and suddenly you’re having trouble focusing on work. You feel tired and drained even though you haven’t slept much.
For Nigerians, sleep is a luxury that many cannot afford. The constant hustle and bustle of urban life make it difficult for us to get quality sleep. And with the number of Nigerians who commute daily to various places for work, it becomes even more difficult.
This is why Nigerians need quality sleep. It’s not just for the sake of being fit, healthy, and productive. Quality sleep is also crucial for good health, especially for those who are working long hours and living a busy lifestyle. Here are some reasons why:
1) Sleep makes us smart
The human brain works 24/7 but it needs to rest at least eight hours a night to function well.

3) Sleep improves memory performance
Sleep improves your ability to remember things better when you wake up in the morning. It is believed that poor sleep affects mood and brain function; therefore it affects how you perform cognitive tasks throughout the day as well. According to scientists at Harvard University, people who slept less than six hours had more trouble remembering words than people who slept more than eight hours per night.
Sleeping well is essential for good health and quality of life. Sleep is an important part of the body’s daily routine, which helps regulate body temperature, blood pressure, and metabolism.
While most people get enough sleep, some may not feel rested upon waking up. This can be because of a variety of reasons such as stress, illness, or even lack of physical activity during the day. However, it is recommended that you get 8 hours of sleep daily.
