Here at Creative Health all of our students are taught how to incorporate good sleep habits and how to identify which natural non habit forming sleep aids will assist them and others in their healing journeys. We know, for our bodies to overcome physical stresses we need to feed ourselves living foods combined with proper rest. These two elements are the basis for boosting the bodies immune system and putting the brakes on illnesses and disease that stress the body.
The Center for Disease Control has adopted the slogan, “Sleep is a necessity … not a luxury” and has even implemented a viral e-card campaign on the Internet to spread the word.
Are you getting by with 5 to 6 hours of sleep or less per night? Have you convinced yourself you can function just fine on this small amount of of sleep?
The National Sleep Foundation has noted that the need for sleep changes as we age, but as a general guideline, adults need at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep during every 24 hour period. Sleep is when our body rebuilds muscle, calms nerves, balances hormones and does overall repair to the damages that physical and mental stresses our body systems have endured during our waking hours.
30% to 50% of north Americans are getting insufficient sleep. Pour sleeping habits and insomnia weaken the immune system, brings on depression, aches and pains, weight gain, lowered mental capabilities, confusion, irritability, headaches and even death.
Best Life Ever!
