Now let’s talk:
True, not everyday is your day, and not everyday is mine too, so what? It’s the same with everybody else! The best thing to do is to forget about feeling sorry for yourself, and to turn your day the best you could in your favor. I try to hold into my days when they are my days. I try to accomplish as much as I can. Sometimes, I succeed and others I’d be a bit short in achieving all my planned goals. It’s Ok, no need to be hard on yourself.
Care about yourself, and ask yourself these questions:– Does it take me more than thirty minutes to fall asleep? – Do I wake throughout the night or too early in the morning and have a hard time going back to sleep? – Do I feel wobbly during the day?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you may be suffering from sleep debt, that can be greatly affecting your life. Sleep is not merely a break from our busy routines, it is essential for good health, proper mental and emotional functioning and ultimately our safety. Insufficient sleep may result in reduced productivity and concentration, impaired memory, decreased learning and logical reasoning abilities, and can also lead to increased feelings of stress causing difficulty in all areas of life.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has estimated more than 100.000 auto crashes annually may be fatigue-related. There is also mounting evidence that long-term sleep debt may be a factor in managing the difficulties associated with diabetes, obesity and a weakened immune system.
Though everyone’s individual sleep needs vary, most healthy adults need an average of eight hours of sleep each night. However, the quality of sleep is usually more important than the quantity of sleep. Getting enough sleep without interruptions from your environment or internal factors is more likely to help maintain your body’s natural sleep pattern and result in more restful and restorative sleep.
Sleep is one of the most important functions for the brain to operate properly. Healthy sleep is required for your nervous system to regulate responses to external stimuli.
A recent study proved that patients of sleep deprivation, reported best improvement, after including regular fitness programs in their daily activities. This is an agreeable result with other research work in this area, since physical fitness approach is not similar to consuming a cup of coffee or a glass of alcohol to help perk you up. The later are common contributors to disrupted sleep patterns, but as far as the physical fitness approach is, it tackles your aptitude aspect. It encourages your body to create everything needed by your system.
If you seriously want to improve your sleep issues, you need to take an action right away, and join a physical fitness class, and see for yourself how like a new person you will be.
Occasionally, everyone can suffer from a poor night sleep, but students, shift workers, travelers, n persons with depression or chronic pain may be particularly vulnerable.
So take a deep breath, and take your decision now. Call the nearest spots that provides fitness classes, n try it; nobody will know better how you feel, except yourself. Go for it, no procrastination, not anymore. Trust me, it’s time! 😉
