Good Health Tip Of The Day

Today’s good health tip of the day we will discuss sleep!  As Holistic Lifestyle coaches, we realize how vital sleep is to good health.  Do you know that in today’s society where we never really see complete darkness? We also see sleep as the forgotten good healthgood health practice.  According to Dr. Osborne, and many other holistic lifestyle practitioners sleep must be considered a health nutrient rather than something we must do.

We must get better sleep for our good health.  Rob Wolfe said in an interview I listened to months ago and I am paraphrasing if people got more sleep most of the health problems would go away.

Humans are not nocturnal.  It is not in our best interest to be up after the sun goes down.  I know not possible in today’s world.  There is so much to do, so much TV to watch, the Internet to be on can not get to bed early.

Let me give you an example from Dr. Osborne what in fact can disrupt sleep.

Here is a quick video with Dr. Osborne as he explains how sleep will help with your good health:

Great video, right?  So now we know that we must get more sleep and especially sleep between 10 pm and 2 am for our good health.  How do we do that?

So now we know that we must get more sleep and especially sleep between 10 pm and 2 am for our good health.  How do we do that?

Here are a couple of Holistic Lifestyle coaching good health ideas for great sleep:

Get to sleep by 10:30 pm.  Take the hour before bedtime to wind down prior to falling asleep. Turn down the lights, turn off the computers.  Physical Repair is between 10:00 pm and 2 am.  After 2 am the immune/repair energies are more focused on mental repair, which lasts until we awaken.
•Minimize the exposure to bright lights,(fluorescent lights, at least 2 hours before going to bed.)
•Sleep in a completely dark room.
•Avoid the consumption of stimulants (caffeine, sugar, and nicotine) after lunch.
•Be very mindful of desserts at dinner containing alcohol, sugar and or caffeine again these might stimulate and cause trouble sleeping.
•Eat balanced meals, particularly at dinner.
•Drink plenty of water, dehydration causes the body to feel stressed and the stress hormones are awakening hormones.
•Exercise.  This will help you sleep better at night.  Do be aware of the time of day you train, intense training after dinner can increase cortisol levels making it hard to get to sleep.
•Consider moving electrical appliances in your bedroom to the other side of the room from the bed.
 
So there you have it.  For me going to bed for 10 pm is the biggest challenge for my good health.  How about you?  Do you get to sleep before 10 pm for your good health?

How will you improve your sleep with this good health tip?

    I am SOOO bad in this respect. 2am would be an early night for me, and even then I often lay awake until 4:30am. Problem is it’s only after 10pm that I seem to get peace and quiet to do anything productive.

    I’ve been trying to go to bed earlier, better try even harder 🙁 Useful tips to work on. Thanks.
