Sleep Well

You gotta have it and it is golden! Sleep is the cycle that cleanses and replenishes our body systems. The brain’s circadian rhythms follow darkness and light. Exposure to hours every day of light from computer and cell phone screens, TV at night and bright artificial light after sunset can all over-stimulate our nervous systems and can disturb these natural rhythms. Eating late in the evening, under-hydrating and use of caffeine and nicotine also adversely influence sleep quality. Frequent disturbance of our circadian rhythms and poor sleep quality erodes health of the body systems. Insomina and sleep apnea are prevalent in our culture.
