Sleep, we all know what sleep is, but yet, do many readers like you know what it does to you? You may not know but the pros and cons of sleep are massive.  Some pros of sleep are body growth and feeling ready for the day. Some cons of not getting enough sleep are, feeling very tired during the morning minutes when your awake and if not enough sleep is achieved then you may have a shorter life-span. Though there are many pros and many cons, the benefits of sleep outweigh the negative effects.

According to Health.com, “Article 11 surprising health benefits of Sleep” it states that “if more sleep is achieved then your Brain will improve in memory, you may live longer. These benefits come from sleep alone and all it takes is for you to go to bed early everyday and you will feel refreshed. Other benefits are increase in performance rates and increase in creativity, and also better grades. Some negative effects of not enough sleep are, “A higher chance of dying to a heart attack because of more C-reactive Protein, also less focus and more shorter attention span to the teachers which result in a bad grade.” You may also die due to lack of focus most likely in a car crash.

As many can see, the benefits of sleep are crucial to today’s world, and yet people still don’t get enough sleep and risk facing all the consequences. They mostly likely know that sleep is good for them but they grow used to it that they can’t stop sleeping late. The pros are how it affects growth, attention span, life-span and also more creativity can be achieved. If people do not get enough sleep then the consequences are shorter life, increase danger of a heart attack, lower grades, etc. Now as readers can see how crucial sleep is and why you as the reader should get a healthy amount of sleep everyday, 7-9 hours.

    Dear Brian:

    I am intrigued by your post, “Sleep, the Beauty of Sleep and How it Affects You!,” because, it connects very closely to my life.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “if not enough sleep is achieved then you may have a shorter life-span” I think this is important because as a 7th grader, I rarely get enough sleep, and this stood out to me because it alerted me to the consequences I could face from lack of sleep.

    Another sentence that stood out to me was: “According to Health.com, “Article 11 surprising health benefits of Sleep” it states that “if more sleep is achieved then your Brain will improve in memory, you may live longer. These benefits come from sleep alone and all it takes is for you to go to bed early everyday and you will feel refreshed.” This stood out for me because not only did it hold important information, but it is a direct piece of evidence from a reliable source which proves the point you are trying to make.

    Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you write about interesting and important issues that can greatly impact people’s lives.
