Wellness Tip for Tuesday, 22 May 2018

Your sleep matters more than you may know.

Guard your sleep for better brain health.

What in your life is worthy of protection? Your family, no doubt. And perhaps material things like your home, car, and meaningful family heirlooms. How about your sleep? In fact, guarding your sleep may be one of the best ways to help your health. Research links sleep deprivation with heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and decreased immune function. And a preliminary new study shows that losing a single night of sleep may cause an Alzheimer’s-related protein called beta-amyloid to accumulate. This does not mean that you’ll get the disease from one night of insomnia or interrupted sleep! (If that were the case, anyone who has raised a child would be on the road to dementia for sure.) But it adds to existing evidence that chronic sleep deprivation could raise your risk of dementia. Protect your sleep like the health treasure it is with the following steps:
* a regular bedtime and wake time that allows for sufficient sleep
* limiting or avoiding caffeine in the afternoons
* limiting or avoiding alcohol near bedtime
* a wind-down ritual an hour before bedtime in which you dim the lights, turn off your screens, and do something relaxing, like take a warm bath, practice gentle yoga, or do some deep breathing.
Talk with your physician if you have consistent sleep trouble, and check out our 6-week Go! to Sleep program. Your health is worth the investment!
