Welcome to the first day of our three-day Sleep Well mini course. This week we are launching a five-part sleep course, five recordings of varying length to help you sleep well without bringing the worries or stresses of the day to bed with you.
Because your bedtime is a sacred time to reset and recharge and you deserve to be able to sleep deeply in order to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for whatever the day throws at you.
The course of sleep recordings can be bought together as one album or individually depending on your choice. They vary in length and theme as follows:
8 minute | Sleep well introduction
15 minute | Return to sleep
25 minute | Deep sleep for confidence
25 minute | Deep sleep for stress relief
40 minute | Ultra deep sleep
So, to celebrate the launch of our sleep course recordings we will be sending you our Sleep Well mini course over three days this week. Hands up who wants to have better sleep?
Today we are going to talk about the importance of sleep. Sleep has so, so many amazing benefits. It is one of the most natural and simple ways to increase your wellbeing and the power of a good night’s sleep just can’t be underestimated.
To start with, good sleep leads to better levels of concentration and productivity, it can also help with your memory and problem-solving skills. All of which are really important, particularly when juggling the stresses of this current world we are living in. If you get your 8 hours a night, you are going to be far better equipped for performing well at work and achieving your goals. We live in a society that focuses on short sleep and maximum working hours but that can actually have a detrimental effect on the quality of work you produce. Sleeping longer and allowing time for restful breaks will maximise the time you spend working or concentrating by giving you the focus you need to perform your best.
Whilst you sleep your body rests and recharges, but the same happens with your mind. It uses the time you spend sleeping to process and organise the information it takes in during the day to allow you to wake up with a clear head. This can also have an effect on your emotional wellbeing. Sleep helps you process your emotions. Chronic lack of sleep can lead to depression and anxiety. Staying up all night worrying about things that are out of your control can create an unhealthy cycle of wakefulness and worry, which can lead to low mood and the release of the stress hormone, cortisol.
Creating a healthy sleeping pattern will help to reduce stress and build up a greater sense of wellbeing.
The benefits don’t stop there, sleep has great benefits for your body too. If you are trying to lose weight, quality sleep plays a crucial role in achieving your body goals. Lack of sleep can cause you to reach for high sugar foods for energy, as it can change the level of hormones in your body that signal hunger - leading to weight gain. It also impacts your immune system, gives your body the time it needs to rest and repair and keep you fit and healthy.
On top of all that, sleep reduces your risk of heart disease and stroke. Your heart will become healthier if you get between seven and nine hours of sleep each night.
If you didn’t already love sleep, how much more amazing does sleep sound now you know about all the lovely benefits it can give you?
On Wednesday, we will be giving you all of our best tips and tricks to line yourself up for the perfect night’s sleep with the ultimate bedtime routine and on Friday we will give you the first recording in our sleep course for free to set you off on your journey to the land of nod.
We can’t wait to see you then,
