We all know it and it is also scientifically proven -- the benefits of having adequate sleep are endless. When we sleep, the tissues, organs, and muscles in our bodies renew themselves. It affects the growth and stress hormones, immune system, appetite, breathing, blood pressure, and cardiovascular health. It’s also a time when our brains recharge. When we get a good night’s sleep, we have quicker reflexes and we can focus better during the day.
Essentially, sleep is like free body therapy. It gives the body the proper emotional and physical reset everyone needs daily. But sometimes, finding the sweet spot to get just the right amount of sleep doesn’t come easy for most of us. The busy lifestyle we often lead eventually takes a toll on us and even when we’re prepped up and ready to sleep, we end up tossing and turning -- All. Night. Long. Surely there’s a lot that can interfere with our natural sleep patterns. But more often than not these sleep troubles are a result of poor sleep habits that can be changed over time.
