Smart Anti-Ageing Tip & Practice

Why sleep is important and what happens when you don’t get enough.

Night time is the time when your body goes into repair mode. Most of your organs take a break during this crucial time and free up blood flow and energy for this essential maintenance period.

Imagine a car engine that runs and runs and runs, without proper stop or break for rest and repair. Putting top performance engine oil and using expensive stuffs on it will not be able to help it stay in top form condition, if you do not give it a good rest frequently.

So, don’t think that just by popping in tons of multi vitamin pills or supplement or consuming a healthy diet is going to be of any good, if your body doesn’t get sufficient rest at the appropriate time. Your body will not be able to absorb all the goodness and put it to good use at night. As a result, your lack of sleep will reflect on your face, skin, mood and general health in the long term.

When I say sleep here, I mean quality sleep.” Quality sleep is that of sufficient duration and depth that results in one feeling awake and refreshed throughout the day. Best time to be sleeping? Between 10.30 pm – 5.30 am.

Unable to sleep well at night? 

1) Tire yourself with exercise in the day time
2) Off load your mind by journaling before bed
3) Dim down the lights and listen to soothing music, half an hour before bed time. 
4) Do some yoga poses to slow down your breathing and mind.
