How a Sleep Consultation Can Help You

Did you know that nearly a third of your life is spent sleeping? This equals an average of 8 hours of sleep per night. Why does the body need that much sleep? 

What Sleep Does for the Body

Sleep is necessary to keep the body healthy and functioning properly. It allows your body and brain to re-energize, restore, and repair. While you sleep, your body works to repair its muscles, organs, and other cells. The brain also stores new information and gets rid of toxic waste, while nerve cells communicate and reorganize to support healthy brain function. Sleep deficiency can contribute to chronic health problems with the heart, kidneys, and brain.

What Can You Do if You Aren’t Getting Enough Sleep?

Sleep troubles can be the result of many different factors. Even if you are sleeping the ideal amount of hours each night, the quality of your sleep has a significant impact on your body’s health. Some of the signs you may be having sleep troubles are:

  • You wake up feeling tired.
  • Falling asleep in the middle of the day.
  • Headaches in the morning.
  • You experience a lack of energy.
  • If you experience any mental fatigue or depression.
