Lately I have had a lot of people reach out to me about sleep. Personally, sleep is one of my non-negotiables and while I understand not everyone is as fortunate as I am, I am not the person that is willing to skimp on my sleep.
"Tired but wired" when you lay down at night, sound familiar? You feel exhausted but end up just laying there getting frustrated because you can't actually fall asleep. Girl, your cortisol levels are most likely jacked up (thats not a good thing) and we need to fix that ASAP.
If you are trying to improve your health or lose weight, one of the first things you need to look at is your sleep quality and consider ways to improve it. Consistent poor or lack of sleep can be a pretty detrimental thing to your health. Here are some things you need to be concerned about if your sleep is suffering:
-Increased risk of heart disease and cancer
-Lowered immunity and you get sick more often
-Foggy brain, forgetful often
I understand some people work shift schedules or have small children, there are always exceptions to the rules. But, if you don't have things like those that are out of your control, get your sleep in check!
