Are You Getting Enough Sleep

One of the best ways to counteract stressors of daily life is really getting the best sleep possible. During sleep, the brain flushes out metabolic debris and the body is put into a deep healing state. Chronic stress on top of poor sleep is a recipe for rapid degeneration of health. 

EFFECTS OF SLEEP DEPRIVATION:

  • Irritability
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Memory lapses or loss
  • Severe yawning 
  • Hallucinations
  • Symptoms similar to ADHD
  • Imparied immune system
  • Increased heart rate variabilty
  • Risk of heart disease
  • Decreased reaction time
  • Tremors
  • Headaches
  • Risk of obesity


Optimizing sleep has a lot to do with regulating your circadian rhythm. Your body is designed to be awake when the sun is up and asleep when the sun is down. With so many artificial light sources, the body no longer receives the right signals for sleep.

So What Can Help With Sleep Success?

  • Avoid articifial light 1-2 hours before sleep
  • Get morning sunlight
  • Be in bed by 10pm if possible, every hour of sleep before midnight is equal to 3 hours after midnight
  • Blackout your bedroom
  • Limit caffeine in the morning /day
  • Form a pre-sleep routine
  • Practice gratitude to relax your mind before bed

 
Sleeping also helps maintain vital functions. One of the most important is it provides cells and tissues the opportunity to recover from the wear and tear of daily life. It also helps with muscle growth and protein synthesis. Bottom line, Sleep is as important to your health and well being as good nutrition and exercise.
