We are living in a time when adequate sleep is at an all-time low. The majority of us are not getting enough sleep. Sleep is as important to our health as working out the gym and yet most of us regard nightly shut eye as something we wish we could avoid.
Proper amounts of sleep can:
- Regulate your appetite
- Reduce headaches
- Reduce anxiety
- Reduce disease
ONE NIGHT OF INADEQUATE SLEEP:
- Our cells that attack cancer cells drop by 70%
- Our ability to fight the common cold is reduced
- Contributes to weight gain
- Odds of being in a car accident increase
- Cranky – short tempered
- Negatively effects mental health
We all need to make sleep a priority our health depends on it!
Is skipping out on “recharges” slowly going to killing us all? #HealthStatus
