Get Enough Sleep

sleeping-storm

Nothing can replace enough sleep. After all, how can you have a perfect morning if you are waking up exhausted? Most of my clients simply don’t get sleep. I’m not talking about strictly the insomnia patients. We live in an on the go, constantly over stimulated, high stress, rather polluted, very demanding society. We work all day, are constantly bombarded by the demands of our electronic devices, we spend hours in traffic, or hours in front of the to/internet/cell phone/ video games, …. and with all this on the go the typical American is only getting about 6.8 hours of sleep. Further 1 in 3 Americans isn’t getting that much sleep. The problem is that there are a variety of health problems associated with being tired.

Weight gain,

Depression,

Anxiety,

Body aches and pains,

Impaired judgement,

Poor memory,

Lowered libido

and an increase risk of;

Heart disease

Heart attack

Heart failure

Irregular heartbeat

High blood pressure

Stroke

Diabetes

The extra hour or 2 from going to bed early and sleeping in will help you with all of your wellness goals. Prioritize your life not your life style. #getpoked.
