Sleep is vital for good health, and in our busy lives we sometimes forget just how important it is. On this blog, we rabbit on about all things sleep, but maybe it is time we go back and revisit the basics.
I found a great article that covers what happens during sleep and looks at all the different stages of sleep without all the scientific mumbo jumbo. Check out the article at http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/excessive-sleepiness-10/sleep-101. Essentially, you need to get all stages of sleep to get a good night’s sleep and most adults need 7 to 8 hours sleep per night. When you are deprived of sleep there can be impacts on your health, for example, impaired memory, depression, decreased immune response, fatigue, and increased pain are just of few of the potential consequences.
So if you are sleeping poorly, or you would like to find out more about getting a better, healthier night’s sleep, Wenatex runs free ‘Healthy Sleep for a Better Life’ seminars all over Australia.
