Sleep Disorders

While sleep is a useful tool for combating signs of stress and tension, your sleep can also fall victim to the ravages of stress. High levels of cortisol can interfere with your sleep-wake cycle and prevent you from falling asleep. An off-kilter sleep cycle can also prevent your body from obtaining the necessary quantity of deep, uninterrupted sleep each night. Prepare your body for a restful night of sleep by dimming the lights and engaging in quiet, restful activities before bedtime. Maintain a cozy, peaceful sleeping area by keeping work activities and noisy distractions out of the bedroom.

In today’s fast-paced world, it can be challenging to protect your body from stress. To keep your defenses strong, be sure to provide your body with nourishing foods. Wholesome foods will provide the energy you need without packing on unnecessary pounds. Make time to exercise to keep fit and allow your muscles to stretch and strengthen. Take frequent breaks while working at your desk to rest your eyes, stretch your muscles, and sip water. Include time to relax with friends, unwind with a book, and enjoy your favorite hobbies. A happy, relaxed mind contributes to a healthy body.
