Weekly Focus: 

Get Some ZZZZZZ

Getting 60 minutes a day of physical activity has tremendous benefits. But daily activity cannot overcome the negative consequences of regular sleep deprivation on our bodies. Seven to nine hours is the amount of sleep recommended for optimum health. Sleep provides our bodies a time for healing, restoring chemical balance, and establishing new thought connections that help with memory retention. Today, few people are getting enough ‘shut-eye’ and the results are significant.  

Regular lack of sleep has a profound effect on our bodies and our minds, impacting our health and quality of life. Poor sleep is linked to memory issues, a weakened immune system, low libido, and increased risks for diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. If that isn’t enough, lack of adequate sleep is also associated with trouble concentrating and thinking, mood changes, poor balance, and increased accidents.  

The good news is, there are steps we can take to improve the quality and quantity of our sleep!

They include:

  • Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day
  • Sticking to a sleep/wake schedule even on weekends and holidays
  • Avoiding caffeine after noon or several hours before bedtime
  • Reducing alcohol intake
  • Avoiding heavy meals right before bed
  • REGULAR EXERCISE, but not close to bedtime
  • Limiting screentime before bed
  • Cultivating a relaxing bedtime routine, such as reading, meditating or enjoying a warm bath

 

GOOD LUCK AND GOOD NIGHT!
