Sleep, Your Way to Health


Sleep- Is free and does not cost you money so take advantage of it. Sleep provides valuable recovery and healing benefit for the body. Our body has an internal clock that is in tune with the day and the night. Sleep provides us with the rest that we need so that our energy is always at its best.


During sleep from 10-2am our body goes through physical recovery and from 2-6am our body goes through mental emotional recovery. For optimal recovery and health it is important to have a regular sleep time and wake up time. Going to bed at 10 pm and waking at 6 am will give you 8 hours of sleep.


Prepare yourself for sleep by turning the lights off, electronics (especially those tablets and phone) at least 1- 2 hours before bed will prepare your body for sleep. Here are some more ways that you can choose from to help improve your sleep.
