Sleep is One of the Pillars of Good Health

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.

I don't know about you, but I am tired of feeling bad about myself just because I've had 50+ birthdays. I choose to show those who want me to become invisible just because I am an older woman - I will not!

But it is also important not to be overly self-absorbed in holding on to our youth – this would lead to imbalance.

Here’s a perspective on finding balance between aging and anti-aging I hope you'll appreciate.
