Feel like you need a vacation after the busy holidays? Recover and rejuvenate by improving your sleep!
What's the big deal with sleep anyways? The “I'll sleep when I'm dead” mentality is what's killing people.
Sleep is VITAL to health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough good quality sleep is necessary for physical health, mental health, quality of life, length of life and every day safety.
The way you feel greatly depends on your sleep. When you sleep, your body works to support healthy brain and body function by supporting growth and development and enabling repair and restoration from the many processes of life.
The negative implications from sleep deficiency and deprivation can occur in an instant (such as an accident due to tiredness), or can cause chronic issues and long term health problems. Your sleep affects how well you think, react, work, learn, and relate to yourself and others.
How sleep deprived are you?
Do you feel sleepy or irritable throughout the day? Find it challenging to stay awake when sitting still? Feel very tired when driving? Have a hard time concentrating? Often look tired? Dark circles under your eyes? Have a hard time controlling your emotions (anger, sadness, sensitive)? Always feel like you need a nap? Need caffeinated drinks to function?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you could be facing a sleep problem - and you aren’t the only one! According to the American Psychological Association, more than 40 percent of adults experience daytime sleepiness severe enough to interfere with their daily activities several days each month - with 20 percent reporting problem sleepiness several days each week.
The solution for better sleep?
If you go to your family doctor, you will most likely leave with a prescription for sleeping pills. Apart from those, many sleep sufferers tend to use alcohol, recreational drugs or television to help them fall asleep. Although these methods seem to work at first, they soon become less effective and often leave people feeling groggy and tired the next day and end up worse off in the long run. I have great news - There are some wonderful NATURAL ways to help fix your sleeping problems so that you can be catching big time Zs sooner than you thought!
