|Sleep isn’t a waste of time. Your body does more than just shut its eyes when you lay down at night to sleep. |
Did you know that great sleep is needed for the following:Proper Bowel Function – Too little sleep throws our body out of whack and that includes our GI system. When you are tired, you’re more likely to make poor food choices and snack on refined carbs and processed sugars during the day/night. These less nutritious foods lack fibre and inflames the bowels. Making constipation worse.Good Skin Conditions – Research shows that the release of growth hormones during sleep stimulates collagen production. That means supporting collagen production with sufficient sleep can help keep your skin resilient. It also proves how sleep affects many signs of premature aging, including loss of firmness, fine lines, and wrinkles.A Stable Mood & Mental Health – During the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycle of sleep, your mind begins to dream and it’s at this stage during the night which contributes to emotional health. Unfortunately, disruptions in sleep can interrupt these cycles which can impair thinking and emotional regulation.When you look around the office, how many people are struggling with their sleep?
