The amount and quality of sleep you receive is fundamental to filling your well. Your mind and body receive tremendous value when you make sleep a priority and get the amount of deep, restful zzz's you need. Our Small Things for the month of May, is to Sleep Well.
Not getting enough sleep wreaks havoc on us; in every area of our life. Lack of sleep causes forgetfulness, irritability and makes it difficult for us to make decisions. It weakens our immune system, making us more susceptible to viruses and also makes it harder for our body to recover from illness. Furthermore, without adequate sleep, we naturally crave high-fat, high-sugar foods, and we all know those aren’t the best food choices. Not to mention the bags and dark circles that form under our eyes ~ I know you aren’t going for that look!
There's an unhealthy cycle that we can find ourselves caught in without enough sleep and I know it well! I spent years living in that cycle and while in it, it felt impossible to get out of it. However, once I learned the tools and implemented the habits that make going to sleep easy, the once (seemingly) impossible became possible. Now sleep is a priority. My habits to fall asleep with ease are not something I'm willing to live without.
All month long I'll be sharing tips and valuable information that can help you Sleep Well.
