Sleep Well and Reduce Stress
Sleep plays an important role in your overall health. During sleep, your body is hard at work supporting healthy brain function and protecting your physical health. Not getting enough sleep or poor quality sleep will wreak havoc on your system, limiting your body's ability to release the hormones necessary to repair, restore, and refresh cells while you sleep. The result? A more rapidly ageing body and brain! No thank you! Sleep deficiency has been linked to weight gain and increased risk of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and decreased brain function (ie. depression, difficulty concentrating/making decisions). Inadequate amounts of sleep can cause stress and in turn can affect your sleep, it's a viscous cycle! This increase in stress can negatively impact your overall health and your waistline. Aim for 7-8 hours a night to enable your hormones to do their job. Many factors can stop you from having a good night's sleep and our Certified Coach can help you identify what those factors are so that you can start feeling awake and energized in the mornings!
