    Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson: Sleep

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, founder of Miclknight, where health and wellness are one. I am an educator, speaker, author, fitness trainer and passionate about healthy living.


    Gift: at the end


    Topic: Sleep


    What exactly is sleep? What is it's definition? (Wikipedia)


    How much sleep do we need to feel good the next morning?


    Rule of thumb:


    Newborns (0-3months)  14-17 hours


    Infants (4-11 months)   12 - 15 hours


    Toddlers (1-2 years)     11 - 14 hours


    Preschoolers (3-5 years)  10 - 13 hours


    School-age children (6-13 years)   9 - 11 hours


    Teenagers (14-17 years)      8 - 10 hours


    Young Adults (18-25 years) & Adults (26-64 years)   7 - 9 hours


    Older Adults (65 and over)    7 - 8 hours.


    Why is sleep so important in our lives?


    ~60% of waste products produced during sleep, body recovers, skin restores, 


    Lack of sleep: slows down healing process, motor skills are slower, tremors from lack of sleep or too much caffeine....


    Why does good sleep improve our health?


    Where do you sleep the best, your own bed or anywhere? Why? Mattress, pillow, blanket, different bed, unfamiliar room, ...


    Who decides on whether or not we sleep well?


    For children it's the parents......


    For adults..... they decide.....


    Good, deep, and solid sleeps makes you feel so good that you can say upon waking up in the morning:


    "Today is the best day of my life again!!!"


    Conclusion:


    Answer the above questions for yourself and see where you can improve.

    News & Views:


    Some of the latest News & Views: statins are good to lower cholesterol. Are they really? What are the side effects?


    10 yrs ago, I was put on Statins due to "High Cholesterol".


    During this time period, results up and down, never steady.


    Yesterday, when I saw a different Dr., --> no more Statins.


    Benefits: feeling better, knowing my heart will not suffer from the Statins


    Are whole eggs good for you? Do they affect your cholesterol level?


    Was the saying: don't eat the egg yolk, it's too high in cholesterol news or views? True or a Myth?


    Today's news says that the yolk is healthy and had valuable nutrients.


    What are your thoughts, about these news and views?
