Want to know why people say get your ‘Beauty Sleep’?

 

Our skin is able to repair and restore itself at night. It makes new collagen when you sleep which prevents wrinkles and helps promote a glowing complexion. As well as the production of Melatonin which is known for its anti-aging properties.

As Deepak Chopra states, it’s one of the most overlooked keys to vibrant health.

Sleep plays a vital part in your overall health and is just as important as healthy eating and exercise.

Most of us know the impact poor sleep can have in our life. Weight gain, obesity, lack of concentration and productivity, memory loss, increased health risks (diabetes, heart disease, dementia and high blood pressure), reduced libido and can even be linked to mental health conditions like depression. Not to mention the impact on your immune system, leaving you susceptible to acute diseases such as cold or flu.

On the flip side, good quality sleep can reduce stress, improve your immune function, repair your bodies cells and tissues, maximise your performance, and enhance memory function. As well as, reduce sugar cravings and boost your mood

In our modern world, there are many things that can interfere with a good night’s sleep, including the use of technology which can interfere with our body’s biological sleep patterns. Sleep deprivation can result in a weakened immune system and cause chronic inflammation, which is linked to many diseases

And sometimes even if you get those 8 hours a night you may wake up still sleepy and groggy. This can be an indication that you need to review your lifestyle and sleep rhythms and find out if you’re getting the recommended hours of deep sleep each night.

The National Sleep Foundation guidelines recommend between 7-9  hours sleep a night for adults. It’s not just about quantity but also about quality so creating a good sleep routine can help you get quality sleep.

Some healthy sleep tips to help to create a good sleep routine:

  • Eat dinner earlier rather than later and keep it light (no midnight munchies!)
  • Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake, try a clean tea
  • Take a warm bath or shower to relax
  • Listen to relaxing music
  • Disengage from electronics by a certain time at night or at least half an hour before bed
  • Meditation
  • Exercise (even a simple walk can help)
  • Sleep in comfy sheets (high thread count for softness on the skin) and a good mattress.
  • Maintain a similar sleep routine and go to bed at the same time each day.
