World Sleep Day

Did you know that getting enough quality sleep is essential for good health? March 18 is World Sleep Day, and it’s a great opportunity to focus on improving your sleep habits. 

Some tips for better sleep include establishing a regular sleep routine, avoiding caffeine completely after lunch and alcohol too! And creating and maintaining a relaxing sleep environment can also really help.

Getting enough restful sleep is important for our overall health and well-being. Poor sleep can lead to a weakened immune system, mood changes, and weight gain. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night and remember to avoid devices before bedtime too!

 Please prioritize sleep as it’s such an important part of your overall health and well-being!

Sleep

Sleep. It is something we all need but many of us don’t get enough of it. But getting enough of it is so important for our overall health.

When we’re getting our zzz’s, our body rests, recovers, and recharges. It builds muscles, repairs cells, and allows the brain to form memories and improves recall.

But did you know that what you eat, and when, affects how you sleep?

“It might seem obvious why a double espresso after dinner might disrupt your sleep that night — as might a greasy, late-night cheeseburger with fries. However, the connection between a noontime salad and your slumber is somewhat less straightforward — but it’s an important one” – Ana Krieger, MD, MPH, Medical Director of the Centre for Sleep Medicine, New York-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine.

Learning what to eat and when through Metabolic Balance will directly enhance your sleep, increasing vitality and performance.

Sleep

Sleep. It is something we all need but many of us get too little of it! Sometimes we need a little reminder of how important it is to help us get back on track. Sleep is not like money, although we can “catch up” on sleep after a busy week, we can’t bank sleep hours like we can money. If we don’t sleep enough each night there is not a true way to make up for it after the fact. This is why it is so important to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night. In addition, getting enough sleep is important for overall health. While we sleep, our body uses that time to rest, recover, and recharge. It builds muscles, repairs cells, allows the brain to form memories and improve recall. Additionally, it can boost your immune system and improve your heart health. Sleep just like exercise and nutrition is vital for your overall health and helps keep your body healthy and strong!

30 Reasons for Healthy Nutrition   Significantly Better Sleep Quality

Whether we call it beauty sleep or sleep for health reasons, we need sleep to regenerate body and mind. If sleep is disturbed, for example due to sleeping disorders with frequent or early wake-up, the next morning is tough. We feel tired and dull and are not as efficient during the day as usual. Long-term sleep disorders can lead to exhaustion and even depression.

Many factors can unbalance the day-night rhythm. Stress levels, stressful thoughts, the bed situated on an interference zone (e.g., electromagnetic or geological fault zone), are only some of the reasons. Another essential factor is proper nutrition. For example, it helps to eat lighter food in the evening and at least three hours before going to bed. The organism should not be burdened with tough digestive work during the night. This makes it much easier to fall asleep.
