I work with stressed-out women to reduce their stress so they can get
quality sleep and go on to balance their hormones, feel calm, and have more energy
without being dependent on sleeping pills.
Randi’s Wellness Corner is designed to create new possibilities.
Why IS sleep important? To understand why sleep is important, think of your body like a factory that performs a number of vital functions. As you drift off to sleep, your body begins its night-shift work:
* healing damaged cells
* boosting your immune system
* recovering from the day’s activities
* recharging your heart and cardiovascular system for the next day
We know the value of sleeping well, and we’ve all experienced the feeling of being refreshed after a good night’s sleep— and the feeling of fatigue after a poor night’s sleep, But even though we know this, in our BUSY society, many of us are not getting the quality sleep needed to truly receive the health benefits of sleep.
What happens IF you don’t get enough sleep? If your body doesn’t get a chance to properly recharge- by cycling through REM and NREM - you’re already starting the next day at a disadvantage. You might find yourself:
* feeling drowsy, irritable or sometimes depressed
* struggling to take in new information at work, remembering things or making decisions
* craving more unhealthy foods, which could cause weight gain
If this happens night after night, it places a tremendous strain on your nervous system, body and overall health. So, if you’re not sleeping well, it’s important to speak to your doctor, or opt-in to my program.
