How to get good, deep sleep – and why you need it

Good, deep sleep is crucial to your health and well-being. Without good sleep you’re twice as likely to suffer a heart attack, develop high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer.

I’m not just making this stuff up – science is now proving that good, deep sleep prevents life-threatening diseases and serious medical conditions.

If you think you can get away with a good 5 or 6 hours of sleep – think again. The same Scientists spent the last 30-years studying sleep and found that a person who gets 5 or 6 hours of sleep has the same ability as someone who is legally drunk.

Scientists also found that the less you sleep the more negative you are and the more likely you are to suffer from depression, dementia, and Alzheimer disease.

5 or 6 hours doesn’t cut it – not even close.

To reap the full benefits of sleep you need 8 hours or more.

Most adults don’t get the sleep they need because they simply can’t fall asleep and stay asleep. The main reason you can’t sleep is because of all the stress you’ve endured over the years and all the stress you go through every day.

So when it’s time to sleep, you may feel tired but you can’t fall asleep and stay asleep because your mind is over active – thinking about everything that happened or might happen.

All those worries and stress are slowly destroying you both physically and mentally.

You need to get good, deep sleep – the sooner, the better.

Let’s face it all the things that you’re stressed about aren’t going away – you have to deal with them. But you can change how your mind and body respond to stress.

The fastest way to do that is to lower your cortisol levels.

Cortisol is what our body produces every time we feel stressed – it gets the mind active so it can find solutions quickly. The problems begin when we have multiple things that create stress. So every time you’re stressed at work, or at home or in a relationship or for any reason your body produces more and more cortisol.

With all the stress you endure it’s not surprising that you can’t sleep at night. Your body just has too much cortisol.

Not only does the cortisol keep your mind over active it also prevents your body from producing enough sleep agents – making it even harder to fall asleep and stay asleep. That’s why medication doesn’t always work and neither does the over the counter sleep aids.

They might make you feel tired but the cortisol is keeping you awake.

That’s why you need to reduce your cortisol levels

One of the best ways to do that is to exercise – but it has to be rigorous exercise to the point where you’re breaking a sweat.

Since you’ve been building up cortisol over the years you likely have quite a bit stored in your body and it will take some time to reduce the cortisol by simply exercising. Typically you need at least an hour of rigorous exercise every day. And it could take a few months before you get the cortisol down to a healthy normal level.

So start working out and breaking a sweat; the sooner you do that the better.
