Do me a favor and Google ‘sleep.’ It is the craziest, most complex research you will ever do and I would say most of us don’t know the first thing about it. Funny thing is, we all have sleep in common. In fact, sleep is absolutely vital to our survival…more so than Starbucks and cell phones. Gasp!
So there’s good sleep and bad sleep, right? Good sleep is laying down, getting comfortable, and falling asleep for about 8 hours and then waking up every 15 minutes until you’re finally sick of hitting snooze but the sleep was so, SO good and you just want more and more and oh is that just me? feeling refreshed. Bad sleep is laying down, struggling to get comfortable, waking up periodically during the night because you are sweaty or sore and then before you know it the sun is up. Who am I kidding, I don’t need to explain good and bad sleep to you – you know the difference because you do one or the other every night.
But did you know that bad sleep is (dun, dun, dun)…bad for you? It’s not just annoying or disappointing – it is literally bad for you. You recover from the previous day’s exertion during sleep, body AND mind. You detox at night. Sleep affects your memory, your energy, your appearance… It goes on and on. Seriously, Google it – you’ll learn something. And when you’re all caught up and asking yourself, “Why am I sleeping on a shitty mattress?”…then message me. Leave a comment. Ask questions.
