About Sleep

Sleep is one of the three major health components. The other two are diet and exercisehotel-203368_1280

Good sleep rebuilds our immune system.  Sleep is the best remedy to deal with some diseases.

Sleep is also extremely important when we are healthy.

The average adult needs about 7 hours of sleep a night.

The ideal sleep pattern is 8 hours of sleep at night from 10 pm until 6 am. Even though it is not realistic for most of us, we should try to get as close as possible to this pattern.

If it is not easy for you to fall asleep that is a sign that your nervous system is asking for help. Starting from 9 pm avoid everything that can make you nervous: TV news, phone calls to relatives, motivational talks with your kids. “nothing annoying after 9 pm” should be a rule. Take a walk, or watch some calming TV program or listen to you favourite music.

Define a routine for yourself about an hour before your bedtime and follow it each night. This should help you falling asleep and have a good rest.

Yoga is great in helping calming your mind and getting a great night sleep.

If you fall asleep easily but wake up at 3 or 4 pm that means your adrenal system is overworked. In this case you may want to consider some adrenal supplements. You may also try to have some soothing tea or think about something that helps you to go back to sleep. Avoid watching movies unless it is something boring that will help your sleep.  A boring study may be a huge sleeping aid…

If you don’t have any specific health concerns you may just be simply disorganized. Determine how you can improve your scheduler so that you are ready to go to bed at 10 pm, or 11 pm at the latest. This is especially important if your day starts early.
