Sleep is Vital to your Health
From infants to elders, sleep is an integral part of your overall health. Don’t let lack of quality sleep contribute to poor health.
Normal sleep patterns are elusive – especially as we age. Sleep is affected directly and indirectly by stress, hormones released by your body and other aspects of your daily life and health.
Improving sleep can be as simple as adjusting the hours when you spend time using your devices such as smartphones and LED televisions. It can also be very difficult to attain when your body is already in a static state of stress and anxiety.
Cortisol, a naturally produced hormone in the human body, is a significant factor in the sleep-wake cycle. Also, melatonin is another significant player in the sleep cycle.
