“Sleep is for the weak!”
When I was a teenager, that was my motto, mostly because I used to watch Cartoon Network a lot and I thought Toonami was the coolest thing around. As the Good Book says however, “when I became a man, I put away childish things”. And thus here I am, running a website that purports quite the opposite of the above.
Today’s world is incredibly crazy! We’re more connected than ever and that comes with advantages and disadvantages. We have far more obligations to fulfil with far less time to do it in…so what’s our default go to for time wen there is none?
And with that, our days suddenly expand from a regular 16 hours of wakefulness to suddenly somewhere between 18 and 20 hours (sometimes some of us never see our beds for days!). Sure we get everything done, but what happens to our bodies? What happens to our brains, and what inevitably happens to our performance, general health and overall sense of well-being?
The short answer is that they all suffer. Poor sleep can lead to a myriad of chronic health conditions,?such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and even stroke! Long-term studies have been done time and time again that prove the debilitating effects of sleep deprivation, and I believe that in today’s busy, connected?world, we need to refocus on the importance of rest in our daily schedules.
On this page I would like to provide helpful tips and information for adults who are seeking to improve their quality of life through better sleep. I am interested in hearing from you about issues you may have experienced and/or techniques you may have tried in the past to improve slumber. Please don’t hesitate to reach out–I’m interested in your journey!
