Today we’re going to dive headfirst into one of the most important factors regarding your health: sleep.
We all know that sleep is important. A good night’s sleep plays a crucial role in your health. It also plays a huge role in your energy levels and everyday functioning.
It’s not only physically important, but it’s also cognitively important to get a good night sleep. Did you know that when we’re sleeping, neurons in the brain fire nearly as much as they do during waking hours? So it should come as no surprise that what happens during our resting hours is extremely important to a number of brain and cognitive functions.
Sleep deprivation impairs your judgment, makes the body retain fat, your body is unable to heal or repair properly, can cause depression, and you can even increase the chances of early Alzheimer’s.
If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, you’re not alone. I actually have a love-hate relationship with sleep. For many years, I’ve struggled with insomnia issues… I’ve gotten much better, but I still have trouble every once in awhile.
On today’s episode I give you a bunch of tips on how to refresh your bedtime routine, I give you strategies on how to banish some of your bad bed habits, and I help you set the stage in your bedroom for a good night’s sleep. And even if you’re already sleeping soundly, these tips can help!
Then for next week’s, Part 2 episode, we’re going to look at why it’s hard to wake up and get out of bed sometimes. I’ll then give you some ideas to freshen up your morning routine to help you wake up feeling well rested and recharged.
