    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.

    Get Fit,Stay Healthy

    in Spirituality

    In 2013, I turned 50 YEARS YOUNG, and I AM a proud member of the Baby Boomer generation! I PASSIONATELY BELIEVE that the aging process should be an experience filled with enlightenment, self-confidence, and increased fitness. The traditional mindset is that growing older is something to be feared and faced with submission (i.e. I will put on more weight, become less flexible, and experience declining energy). As for my own testimony, at no previous time have I been more fit, healthy, well, happier, and more prosperous than I am now! Through my own life example, and also through the transformed lives of the many client’s whom I have the privilege to coach, I wish to demonstrate that indeed life can be sweeter at 50 years and beyond!


    I seek to change the mindset of my clients to believing that with a committed effort towards regular exercise, proper diet and stress management, they too can live increasingly robust lives.
