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.

What You Need to Know About Muscle Memory, Facial Massage, and Gua Sha

February 12, 2021

Muscle memory probably isn’t something you’ve thought about when it comes to your face, right? You’ve likely only heard about muscle memory in the context of working out at the gym. But what you need to know is muscle memory is part of what contributes to advanced aging of the face. It contributes to deep wrinkles, pesky frown lines at the corners of the mouth, and those vertical creases in between your eyes and other such etchings on the face.

Please don’t think this means you have to learn facial exercises because those can actually cause more problems. The muscles on the face are much more delicate than the large muscles on the body and this calls for more delicate and precise treatments.
