Chronic or acute, lack of sleep relentlessly affects your health, performance and even safety.
The brain can not operate properly on little sleep, and chronic sleep deprivation can contribute to high blood pressure, depression/anxiety and even obesity. And this is nothing to take lightly!
Personal relationships often also suffer at the hands of no sleep, with tensions and emotions running high for the person who is sleep deprived, leading to fighting and arguments which would normally be avoided.
Intimate relations can be challenged too, with sex becoming seldom, or non-existent, due to the sleep deprived being too tired, leading to a trouble in the bedroom, and beyond.
This is just the tip of the iceberg as to what problems can result from lack of sleep.
Luckily there are ways to tackle this ever so common but serious problem!
In this video I explain sleep tips for women with PCOS…
Sometimes something as simple as investing in a good pillow can work wonders, and there are many pillows specifically designed to promote a better night’s sleep. The Chiro-Flow Water Based Pillow has rave reviews for helping those troublesome sleepers get the much needed rest they desperately seek.
What many people don’t know is seeing your chiropractor can significantly improve your sleep. Chiropractors help restore normal nerve function and communication within your body, allowing the nerves in your body to communicate to your organs and body tissues normally, thereby resulting in better daily living and sleeping.
And for those with over active minds who just can not switch off at night there are so many relaxation tips to help send yourself off to the land of nod.
A warm tea with honey, a good book, or, instead of trying to fall asleep– why don’t you try to stay awake? Keep your eyes open for as long as you can, and maybe just maybe, it will have the opposite affect!
There are endless relaxation techniques to help you rest your mind, and by combining these with a happy healthy body and lifestyle, I can hear you snoring already!
