Get Some Good Sleep03/02/20
It’s a no brainer why we need sleep, and the majority of us probably do get a ‘good’ sleep every night.
I highlight the word ‘good’ because we all THINK we get a good sleep. But unless you really pay attention, do we know whether the sleep we are getting is of a good quality?
-Why is it important to us?
Sleep doesn’t just contributes to quality physical health but also mental health as well. It improves productivity, emotional balance, brain and heart health, immune system, creativity, vitality, and even helps control your weight.
-How much sleep do you need?
For most adults, the consensus is to try and get between 7-9 hours. BUT...NOW THE IMPORTANT BIT...How do you improve the quality of your sleep?
There’s lots of helpful things you can do to improve your sleep pattern, such as...
-Sticking to a regular sleep schedule
-Restricting caffeine, sugar and alcohol, especially close to bed time
-Managing your stress levels...Not worrying as much!
-Improving your sleep environment ?Yes, there are going to be people who say, ‘I have 5-6 hours each night and I function just fine’. But the fact of the matter is IT DOES affect your physical and mental state and puts you at risk to things such as fatigue, being a moody git, bedroom issues, looking old, getting ill etc .. Do you track your sleep?
If not, it maybe worth doing to seriously see the quality of your sleep...And on that note...Good Night
