Why is Sleep Important?
Nocturnal rest is vitally important to our overall health and well-being. It allows our bodies to rest and repair, giving us the energy we need to face the day. When fully rested, that helps to improve your mood, cognitive function and immunity.
Health Conditions You Can Avoid When You have Good Sleep
There are several health conditions that you can avoid with a good night’s rest. Rather than list ALL the things that can kill you if you keep running on empty, here's just a few:
- Heart disease
Sleep also helps to reduce stress and anxiety levels. Getting enough rest is essential for your physical and mental health.
Things That Can Help You
If you are struggling to get a good night’s rest, there are several things you can do to improve and build healthy habits.
- Create a sleep routine.
- Avoid caffeine or alcohol before bedtime.
- Ensure your bedroom is dark and quiet. It can help turn off the noise in your head.
- Avoid using electronic devices before sleeping. The blue light can impede your ability to rest.
- Consider using a weighted blanket for comfort.
- Take a warm bath or shower to relax your body.
- Read a non-technical book to relax your mind.
- Listen to a sleep meditation audio.
More Good Reasons to Get Your Rest
Sleep is important for your health for many reasons. It helps your body and brain to rest and recover from the day’s activities. It also gives your body time to repair any damage that occurred during the day. This important rest also helps to regulate your hormones and metabolism.
A FREE Gift to Help Your Sleep
I recently produced the free "Time to Rest" audio. It's a short 11-minute long audio to help you slow down and turn off the noise. It's intentionally recorded in a way to tire your mind so you will ease into sleep faster.
At certain points in the audio, a special binaural beat tone plays at a frequency that aligns with your mind when sleeping. Rather than pump in a binaural beat that often sounds like a jackhammer in your ears, this plays under the surface, so the recording is restful.
