Designing Your Physical Future
Your Customized Plan for Rest
The best way to spend one third of your life!
Do the math: if we all got the eight hours of sleep we are supposed to get each night, we would spend 1/3 of our lives in bed. If you live to be 95, that is almost 32 years!! That is a lot of time. Unfortunately or fortunately, if you have spent that much time in bed you are either doing something very right or very wrong – you are helping your body rejuvenate overnight like it needs to, or you are exhausted each day and can barely get out of bed after 8 hours.
Sleep is a very tricky subject and paying attention to how our body communicates whether we have received enough can be very complicated. Creating your own sleep plan teaches you how to understand your sleeping habits and what they have been and re-designs them into a pattern that will be the most beneficial to you and your body. Believe it or not, how much sleep you need is unique to you. We can determine how much it should be and what is the best sleep pattern for your body.
Some of the questions we will be covering are:
- How is your body affected by sleep
- What happens when you sleep
- What signals does the body give us if it needs more sleep
- What are the best hours for you to be sleeping?
- Should you be napping?
- Why do we doze?
- How do your food habits affect your sleep?
- How do your drinking habits affect your sleep?
- Causes of insomnia – it could be very simple! – and how to relieve them
- What are Circadian rhythms and how could they affect your sleep?
Having good sleep habits is one of the foundations of vitality and energy in your life. Plain and simple: if you do not have good sleep habits, you are heading for a road of poor health and a poor quality of life. You need to take your sleep seriously and creating a plan will surely support that. Your future health is very dependent on all your body’s systems functioning properly. And a full night’s sleep is one of the most important ways to support your body’s functioning to the best of its ability.
