A good sleep allows the time for your body to regenerate itself
Our bedrooms have become places of digital stimulation with all the light illuminated for our devices that are charging or that never get turned off, and we constantly get interrupted by sounds of email or other information going to the devices. Our delicate circadian hormonal process has been synchronized with the rising and setting of the sun. We have been hardwired from the beginning to wind down, start to feel sleepy in a few hours, and slowly transition to a full night’s sleep. We have interrupted this cycle and need to reverse it if we are to stay healthy. One study showed that just two weeks of sleep deprivation results in a 50 percent increase in insulin resistance.
