The Healing Power of Sleep

It’s time that everyone seriously rethinks their sleeping patterns, because Australians are simply not getting enough shut-eye. More than one third of adults average fewer than 7 hours sleep each night, failing to reach the minimum requirement to keep their risk of health problems in check

The human body goes to work when we sleep, mending us from our days before, and restoring us for our tomorrows. How you feel during the day depends on what happens when you close your eyes at night. Everyone is broadly aware of the benefits of sleep, and knows that more is commonly advised. However, the emphasis on the positive effects of sleep on your skin, memory, mental health, and eating habits has been drowned-out in our information-rich age. During sleep, your body works to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. Our bodies all require long periods of sleep in order to restore and rejuvenate, to grow muscle, repair tissue, and synthesise hormones

Beauty begins from within. Our daily routines and self-care practices are often dealt a blow during the festive season. If you are still feeling all out of whack, re-setting your sleeping patterns and prioritising the quality and quantity of rest you achieve is the first and most fundamental step towards optimising your performance this year. It’s a simple, attainable change that we’ve all overlooked for too long

Sleep hygiene is critical – so make sure your bedroom is a sanctuary. Dim your lights half an hour before you intend to go to sleep, and do your best to log-off from all your devices. Screen-free time allows your eyes to rest and your mind to calm, better enabling your transition into sleep. Sooth your body with a hot shower or bath, and perhaps even finish the day with some light stretches and mobility. Relaxing and loosening your muscles better prepares them to enter a restorative stage. A de-mister or night serum can also aid your skin’s overnight restoration by soothing from the outside in
