Deep Sleep

By: proctor - March 13, 2008
A lot, and I mean a LOT, of Americans are putting in more than the required hours at work alongside balancing relationships, workouts, and more. That sometimes puts sleep last on the list of priorities. However, sleep deprivation makes you less productive in the long run, as well as looking run down and being more susceptible to illness and injury.

    It's a great topic to investigate because even if we think we're sleeping a lot (spending many hours doing it), we aren't necessarily getting a good deep sleep. I know I've struggled with falling asleep, staying asleep, and waking up feeling refreshed. I think a few good tips are to make sure not to workout or do things that work you up late at night, don't eat sugary foods or drinks before you pass out, and try to take a few minutes to meditate or gently stretch to remind your body and mind it's time to take a break.

    I have suffered from insomnia since I was a child, Magnesium has changed my life. Since I started taking a magnesium supplement every evening, I sleep like a BABY, and wake up REFRESHED! It has honestly changed my life. I love 'Natural CALM'. Check out www.petergillham.com for benefits of magnesium!
