Wake Up to the Truth about Sleep

Posted in Health @ Aug 5th 2013 10:21am - By Exclusively You

Sleep, You Need It!

A common misconception among people is that sleep is a luxury, when really it is a necessity for our health and well-being. Lack of sleep can result in impaired memory, irritability, lack of focus and of course, grumpiness. Disturbed sleep can also stall weight loss. So, if you're eating well, training hard and still not achieving the results you'd hoped for, maybe it is time to reflect on your sleeping patterns and stress levels.



Tips for Better Sleep

The optimal amount of sleep adults should be getting of a night is 8-9 hours and it should be a deeply relaxing, undisturbed resting period. To achieve this, follow the tips listed below:

  • Cut out your phone, TV or computer 30 minutes before sleeping. These devices over stimulate the brain and suppress melatonin which affect how well you sleep.
  • Opt for complete darkness when you sleep. Try an eye mask if you are unable to make your room entirely dark. 
  • Take some Magnesium.
  • Don't go to sleep on an empty or really full stomach.
  • Reduce caffeine intake.
  • Limit beverage consumption before bed so you sleep on an empty bladder.
  • Invest in comfortable and supportive bedding.

 Without enough hours of restorative sleep, you won't be able to work, learn, create, and communicate at a level even close to your true potential. So follow these tips and start to harvest the benefits of proper sleep.
