' Bye Bye Sleeping Through the Night '
Have you said “ bye bye “ to sleeping through the night?
Are you feeling exhausted or “ running on stress hormones” all day?

The science of sleep is fascinating, complicated and growing……
Sleep is this daily thing that we all do and yet we’re just beginning to understand all of the ways it helps us and all of the factors that can affect it.
Lack of sleep affects just about EVERYTHING in your body and mind. People who get less sleep tend to be at higher risk for so many health issues like diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer, not to mention effects like slower metabolism, weight gain hormone imbalance, and inflammation. And don’t forget the impact lac of sleep can have on moods, memory and decision-making skills.
Do you know that lack of sleep may even negate the health benefits of your exercise program?
OMG — What aspect of health does sleep NOT affect??
Knowing this, it’s easy to see the three main purposes of sleep:
* To restore our body and mind. Our bodies repair, grow and even ‘ detoxify ‘ our brains while we sleep.
* To improve our brain’s ability to learn and remember things, technically known as ‘ synaptic plasticity ‘.
* To conserve some energy so we’re not just actively ‘out and about’ 24-hours a day, every day.
Do you know how much sleep adults need? It’s less than our growing kids need but you may be surprised that it’s recommended that all adults get 7-9 hours a night. For real!
