Sleep Can Help You Lose Weight!

Sleep Can Help You Lose Weight

If you want to find a way to lose weight faster, and you think there is nothing new under the sun, then what I’m about to tell you will really make you nod off.

According to Dr Kenneth Goodrick at Baylor University, a good night’s sleep is a vital ingredient for weight loss.

He believes that lack of sleep robs people of the energy they need to exercise and sets up a vicious low-energy cycle that sabotages your weight loss programme. Often when energy reserves are low, people turn to high-fat and high-sugar laden foods or caffeinated drinks for energy pick-me-ups…all of which interfere with weight loss efforts.

Some may drink 10 to 15 caffeinated beverages a day, which has a adverse effect on sleep quality. It’s a double whammy.

This is not the only fascinating connection between sleep and weight gain. Researchers have found there are two hormones involved.

Leptin, a hormone that suppresses appetite, and grehlin, which increases food intake and is thought to play a role in long-term regulation of body weight.

Sleep deprivation lowers the levels of leptin and raises levels of grehlin. This is thought to be the reason why obese people suffering with sleep apnea often put on weight faster than others.

Goodrick says, “Sleep is a time for the brain, the body, and all the hormones to get regulated and restore themselves to the baseline values for the next day. If you have caffeine, or inadequate sleep, you don’t have a chance for all of those restorative processes to get finished. So you’re ending not quite fit, or metabolically where you should be”.

What is a good night’s sleep? Participants in a US study who got less than 4 hours of sleep each night were 73 percent more likely to be obese than those who sleep between 7 and 9 hours a night, the recommended amount.

Those who slept only 5 hours each night were 50 percent more likely to be overweight, and those who slept 6 hours a night were 23 percent more likely to be overweight.

Sleep is also important to your skin. For good health we all need to get a good night’s sleep. Achieve the look and feel you desire!

3 Tips To Beat Insomnia And Sleep Better

If you are one of those people who stay wide awake in the middle of the night, with big eyes staring at the ceiling, then you are suffering from insomnia.

While many turn to prescription medications, they don’t always work and they can have a big impact on your health and your wallet. Not to worry, there are other ways to combat sleeplessness and without knowingly, you are already fast asleep and awake, fresh in the next morning.

There are many causes of insomnia, with hormonal imbalance and stress being two of the biggest culprits. While the tips below will help in a lot of cases, your case may be more severe. If so, then see your doctor as a prescription may be your best alternative. But, before you go that route, try these things first:

1. Let Things Go – We all have things to worry about, but you have to find a way to let those things go before bedtime. In fact, by purposely forgetting them before retiring for the evening, you may actually solve those problems while you sleep.

However, if you go to bed with the intention of solving a hard problem, then your subconscious mind will work differently by trying to keep you awake to solve. It all sounds counter intuitive, but you have the best chance of solving your problems by not worrying about them before bed

2. Learn to Relax – There are many different techniques designed to help people relax and sleep better. You can purchase audio programs that use a form of guided meditation to help you drift off into a deep and restorative sleep.

Sleeping environment matters. Noise, light, temperature or the bed and mattress affects your sleep quality.

It is also vital that you don’t worry about how much sleep you will or won’t get. Focusing on your insomnia is about the surest way to have insomnia. The key is to do things to help you unwind, to help you shift from the cares of the day to preparing to sleep.

3. Stay Healthy – Exercising too close to bedtime will only serve to make it harder to fall asleep. However if you exercise several hours earlier, your body will be more ready to sleep.

Eating well is important to your overall health, and this extends to how well you sleep. The healthier you are, the better you will sleep. Also, sleeping well is part of being healthy, so you will see a difference if you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

If you want to have a good night sleep every night for the rest of your life, then you should achieve a regular habit and healthier sleep pattern.

Are You Sleeping Well?

Are You Sleeping Well?

Why Is Sleep So Important?

Sleep plays an important role in our physical health. We spent one third of our lives sleeping. Sleep affects how we look, feel and perform on a daily basis. Getting the right mattress is important for quality sleep. Not only do we need enough amount of daily sleep, having a more relax and sound sleep is even more important.

Sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. You will feel discomfort, fatigue and easily agitated if you do not have a good night sleep. Your alertness and concentration level will be greatly reduced.


The Importance Of Balancing Positive And Negative Ions

The Importance Of Balancing Positive And Negative Ions

An Ion is an invisible particle which has electric charge. The air around us is filled with electrically charged particles. Positively or Negatively charged and they are called Ions.

Both Positive and Negative Ions are found naturally in the air. However, due to advanced modern technology, the environment we live in today has far more sources of Positive Ions than in the past. This creates an electrical imbalance in the air and our bodies.

The air around us are filled with positive particles. Positive Ions can be produced by commonly usage of handphones, laptops, ipads, radios, transmitters, switching on of televisions, heating and cooling systems. These can damage our body cells and deteriorates our overall physical health.

Ocean surf, sea waves, waterfalls, water and plants generate natural Negative Ions which are beneficial to our health. There are also certain minerals that emit Negative Ions for example Tourmaline and Germanium.


What Are The Health Benefits Of Far Infrared And Negative Ions?

Watch this video which explains what are the health benefits of Far Infrared and Negative Ions have on our human body.


Studies have shown that Negative Ions can have health benefits:

  • enhance our body immune system
  • can reduced stress and control our emotions
  • increased alertness and concentration
  • reduce susceptibility to colds and flu
  • relief migraine headaches and fever
  • reduce the severity of asthma attacks

Sleeping On Far Infrared And Negative Ion Mattress

Sleeping on Far Infrared and Negative Ion mattress is a home use therapy apparatus with the combination of electric potential and thermal function. The mattress emits Negative Ions and Far Infra-red Rays to our body when we sleep on it.

The Effect of Negative Ion

The skin will absorb the Negative Ions emitted by the mattress, thereby improving your respiratory efficiency and rebalance the pH level. It improves your circulation and air quality surrounding you.

Far Infrared Rays is capable of penetrating deep into our body, where they gently elevate the body’s surface temperature, expands capillaries, resulting in better blood flows.

My whole family has been sleeping on Far Infrared and Negative Ion mattress for many years and we wake up every morning refresh and rejuvenated. The mattress helps replenish our body cells that have been exposed to harmful artificially created Positive Ions. Our concentration and alertness level have improved greatly. We are also less susceptible to common colds and flu.
