How To Have Great Sleep Every Night

Sleep is our body’s way to heal, restore, and recharge. We need enough of it to function effectively each night otherwise problems both mentally and physically start to arise. Our sleep quality is determined by our ability to produce the hormones Adenosine and melatonin. If we are struggling to produce these two getting to sleep becomes hard work which is NOT fun. Not to worry though as there are plenty of ways to improve your sleep so read on. :) “When I wake up, I am reborn.” - Mahatma Gandhi

But before we do that let's take a look at what's going on...

There are two terms that describe sleep problems - sleep deficiency and sleep deprivation.

Sleep deficiency: is when you don’t get enough good QUALITY sleep - tossing and turning, sleeping at irregular times, or having a sleep disorder that prevents good quality sleep such as insomnia, sleep apnea, snoring, etc. Sleep deprivation: means you are not getting the needed hours of sleep. Adults need 7 to 9 hours per night. Children and teens need more as they are in the growing stage.
