Lets talk about sleep. We all know sleep is important - but just how important is it really? The importance of good quality AND quantity of sleep is something many underestimate. The body takes advantage of the time you are sleeping and uses this time to properly heal, restore, and even mildly detox.
Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle and can offer the following benefits:
- Better mood
- Better memory
- Stronger immunity
- Lower risk of injury
- Better weight control
- Clearer thinking
- Better overall health
- Improved sex life
- Less pain
How do you know if sleep may be a concern for you? Some things to consider regarding your sleep:
- How many hours of sleep do you average?
- Do you wake up throughout the night?
- Do you have difficulty falling asleep?
- Do you wake up in the morning feel refreshed?
- Do you toss and turn throughout the night?
Sleep shows up as a common complaint for the majority of my nutrition patients. Often, there is another underlying issue with the body that, when properly addressed, sleep improves. The great news is sleep is something I enjoy helping people with and have had excellent results with.
