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.
