How important is sleep for fat-loss?!
For billions of years , nearly all life forms on earth have evolved to be biologically in sync with the consistent rising and setting of the sun – this synchronisation is known as circadian rhythm. Which governs our sleeping and waking patterns. When we interfere with this rhythm through digital stimulation and excessive evening light , different waking and going to bed times as well as using an alarm clock, we disrupt many of the processes we depend upon to stay healthy, focused and productive.
Sleep was long thought of to be a passive state, we now understand sleep to be a dynamic process which involves a number of discrete states from light through Random Eye Movement (REM) and into deep sleep. The brain remains active as it floats in and out of these various states, cleaning the brain and repairing damage. Sleep is a component of proper immune and metabolic functioning, growth, and tissue and muscle repair; that is critical for cognitive and social functioning, memory and emotional well-being – and a good nights sleep leaves you feeling amazing.
In today's hectic world, we sacrifice sleep to squeeze in another hour of Facebook, twitter or the latest Netflix series! The effect of less than optimal sleep can see an increase in appetite, increase in carbohydrate intake and an inability to recover from life's daily stresses.
