When was the last time you woke up feeling rested and refreshed without an alarm clock, not needing coffee or another stimulant to start your day? It is recently estimated up to two thirds of the western world are not getting enough sleep…
We all know the miserable feeling of not having had enough sleep, feeling grumpy and in a bad mood. Lack of sleep may also cause us to have difficulty concentrating and give us frequent headaches. Signs of sleeping problems include daytime tiredness, taking several hours to fall asleep, waking up throughout the night or waking up too early. Lack of sleep is also linked with weight gain. The decrease in the hormone leptin brought on by sleep deprivation can result in a constant feeling of hunger and a general slow-down of your metabolism.
Sleep provides us with so many health giving benefits that many amongst us are ether not taking advantage or not able to take advantage of. Good quality sleep is linked with health of our cardio vascular system, lowering blood pressure while keeping our hearts in fine condition. Sleep is a healing space, so if you are not sleeping you are not healing.
Edgar Allen Poe said sleep perchance to dream. For many this is an ideal they never achieve. Learn the habits of good sleep hygiene such as going to bed and getting up at the same time each day, getting regular exercise each day (preferably in the morning) creating the right environment for sleep and many more so you can ensure you, the people you love and your clients are getting great quality sleep.
