Sleep is One of the Pillars of Good Health

February 01, 2019

Sleep is One of the Pillars of Good Health

Last month I introduced you to Cheryl Richardson and her book, Take Time for Your Life,. This month I’d like to share the latest information about SLEEP and hopefully inspire you to explore your sleep habits and how lack of sleep may be affecting you or your loved ones.

We live in a sleep-deprived society and this has led to a rise in fatigue syndromes, daytime sleepiness, depression, clumsiness, and weight loss or weight gain and type 2 diabetes. It adversely affects the brain and cognitive function. If you simply ask a few people how they slept last night, you’ll be surprised at how many say poorly.

I would venture to say, you may be one of those who are not getting enough sleep. Want to know if you have a sleep deficit?

Here are 4 things to know about sleep.

  1. You likely need more sleep than you’re getting. Find out here.
  2. Being sleep-deprived is common and you may not even know it’s affecting you.
    • Sleep deprivation comes in two levels. Acute sleep deprivation means getting less sleep than usual over a night or two. Chronic sleep deprivation, on the other hand, means not getting quite enough sleep for weeks, months, or even years.
    • When people experience acute sleep deprivation, their sense of feeling crummy and tired is aligned with the actual impact of not sleeping enough.
    • When people are chronically sleep-deprived, they tend to underestimate how much it’s affecting them.
  3. Acute sleep deprivation affects people in many ways:
    • Decreased cognitive performance
    • Worsening of mood
    • Daytime sleepiness
    • Fatigue
  4. Chronic sleep deprivation is associated with long-term health effects.
    • Anxiety and depression
    • Cardiovascular disease
    • Inflammation throughout body
    • Weaker immune system
    • Increased risk of obesity

Only you can answer the question about how much sleep you’re getting (or not getting). I hope you’ll take time to give this some thought and do what you need to do to get your Zzzz’s. Your good health depends on it.

Beware of Holiday Skincare Sabotage
Beware of Holiday Skincare Sabotage

November 13, 2020

You're making great progress in your skincare. You're seeing some bounce return to your skin, areas that were sagging are beginning to lift, and your skin tone is beginning to even out. So, don't sabotage your results over the holidays. 

Skin is composed of collagen and elastin, which makes our skin supple and soft. Sugar causes cross-linking of collagen, resulting in stiffening and loss of elasticity of our skin. The more sugar we have, the more our skin starts to suffer.
