After a hectic week, sleeping in feels so good! Turning over in bed when the sun starts to peak in through the curtains, I easily get lulled back to sleep even with all the traffic noise of urban living. For some people the noise would make it difficult to sleep, but my body know when it needs to rest.
Sleep is essential for your health and in particular to replenish your brain power. We’ve talked about sleep in some of our earlier posts on sleep and on weight gain and want to remind you that good health depends on getting restful sleep.
Dr. Mercola has written an excellent article highlighting some of the latest studies that outline potential health issues when not getting enough sleep. Check it out here.
Below is another excellent resource for information on the effects of sleep and brain function. At a TedMed Conference in San Francisco in September 2014, the neuroscientist, Jeff Iliff, presented some of his research on sleep. Fascinating research that makes a strong point for getting your sleep.
Stay on a healthy track by keeping up with your sleep needs.
