Sleep is the secret sauce. There isn’t one facet of your mental, emotional, or physical performance that’s not affected by the quality of your sleep.
The big challenge is that in our fast-paced world today, millions of people are chronically sleep deprived and suffering the deleterious effects of getting low-quality sleep.
This video show the 5 reasons how not enough sleep is bad for you and effect your health.
What you Can if You do Not Have Enough Sleep
The consequences of sleep deprivation aren’t pretty either. Try immune system failure, diabetes, cancer, obesity, depression, and memory loss, just to name a few. Most people don’t realize that their continuous sleep problems are also a catalyst for the diseases and appearance issues they’re experiencing.
Always remember the value of your sleep. You will perform better, make better decisions, and have a better body when you get the sleep you require. Sleep is not an obstacle we need to go around Sleep is not an obstacle we need to go around. It’s a natural state your body requires to boost your hormone function; heal your muscles, tissues, and organs; protect you from diseases; and make your mind work at its optimal level. The shortcut to success is not made by bypassing dreamland. You will work better, be more efficient, and get more stuff done when you’re properly rested.
50 Tips for Better Sleep
Follow these 50 tips, from my book Sleep Smarter, to get a better night’s sleep, starting tonight.
When you know you have a big task, project, or event coming up, pull out a calendar and plan ahead how you can get your ideal number of sleep hours in. Oftentimes it’s as simple as setting up a schedule. But people overlook it because, well, it’s just too easy.
Begin re-framing your idea of sleep. Instead of seeing sleep as an obstacle to work around (something you “have to” do), start seeing it as a special treat for yourself (something that you “get to” do) and love the entire process.
When it comes to sleep benefits, all sunlight is not created equal. The body clock is most responsive to sunlight in the early morning, between 6:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
Exposure to sunlight later is still beneficial but doesn’t provide the same benefit. Of course, this is going to vary depending on the time of the year, but make it a habit to get some sun exposure during that prime time light period.
