Sleep is a really important ingredient for creating a healthy lifestyle.
With proper sleep our body can better manage stress hormones, our metabolism can function normally, our body cleanse itself of things that aren’t good for us and our mind has time to calm and reset.*
Yet sleep is often overlooked; we sacrifice half an hour sleep here to get to the gym and half an hour there to finish a chapter of a great book.
Well, it’s time to reprioritise and put sleep higher up on the agenda to make sure we’re getting the full 7-9 hours of sleep per night that is recommended for adults by The National Sleep Institute. Improving your relationship with sleep will not only help you, it will also set good examples for your little ones who need sleep even more than adults!
