Sleep: Your Neglected Superpower

The 21st century is wreaking havoc on our sleep quality and seriously messing with our genetic makeup.

‘Screen time’ is disrupting our ‘sleep-time’ like never before:

  • Adults spending hours hunched over computers
  • Teens engaged in the ‘fakeness’ of social media deflating their self esteem
  • Preschoolers distracted by e-games instead of constructing and playing games
  • All of us staring at screens, way past sunset, when our ancestral body clock would normally kick in to wind down, stop eating and get ready for a good night’s sleep

Human beings evolved over a million years to spend one third of our life sleeping!

Surely that means it’s important!

New research clearly indicates that we need a ‘good night’s sleep’ to wash our brains of toxic protein build-up, provide essential nutrients and process all of the activity we experience when we are conscious.

Over the next few episodes I will share with you tips on how to awaken your own sleep superpowers, so you can:

  • Increase your daytime energy
  • Burn fat while you sleep
  • Wake up with fresher skin, hair, and nails
  • Repair pain and inflammation
  • Improve mental clarity
  • Have children who thrive and are centered

A Good Night’s Sleep Tips

Yours in health,
