We are sleep-deprived. Let’s not pretend we’re not!

  1. I’m waking up without an alarm, fully rested, and ready to go.
  2. With a consistent good night’s rest, I’m able to maintain my energy level throughout the day and get more done in less time.
  3. I rarely feel sleepy or tired during the day hence little or no naps now. To be fair, I lose my steam around 8 pm and I’m asleep by 10 pm.
  4. I’m beginning to enjoy jobs like cooking that had become tedious. If I see interesting recipes I try making them right away.
  5. Good rest keeps me calm to carry on. Better sleep=Better mood
  6. Restorative sleep has made me wiser and better informed. This is how: I listen more and understand others better. I’m able to process and retain information efficiently.
  7. Sleep habits have helped me maintain a healthy weight and reduced my junk food snacking.
  • Prioritize yourself
  • Separate sleep myths from facts
  • Stop sacrificing sleep for activities like browsing the phone or watching tv into the wee hours of the morning
  • Make sure to get Quantity (optimal hours) and Quality (right amounts of NREM and REM) sleep
  • For quality sleep, take natural light and a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and practice healthy sleep habits during the day. At night our body and brain work optimally to remove toxins, consolidate memory, repair cells, build muscles, boost immunity to keep infections away.
