Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together. Thomas Dekker, actor
Sleep, such a boring topic, something we take for granted and yet, sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke….and we haven’t even started with the psychological implications. Are you one of the 79 percent of Americans getting less than the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep each night?
If you’re not getting enough sleep you may be experiencing weight gain, irritability, depression, impaired short term memory, decreased libido, poor judgment, decreased productivity, decrease in resistance to viral infections. Whew! I’m going back to bed!
Affirmation: I take care of myself with adequate sleep.
Coaching questions: If you are sleep deprived, what can you do about it? What habits can you change? Sleep is a treasure and you are worth having it!
