Are you experiencing Insomnia? Do you struggle to get to sleep? Do you fall asleep easily and then wake up wide awake during the dark hours of the night? Are you a shift worker struggling with your circadian rhythms? Do you have a busy head and nothing you do will give you the peace you rightly need during your sleep cycle?
Sleep is ubiquitous among mammals, birds & reptiles: Humans spend approx. one third of life asleep, a required activity for normal functioning.
Why do we sleep?
There are many theories about the functions of sleep but no consensus among sleep researchers
- More recently, evidence suggests that sleep is regulated in a use-dependent state.
- It is also imperative in counteracting the effects of stress and over-stimulated sympathetic nervous system (SNS). This is because immune-enhancing compounds are released during the deepest levels of sleep.
- Up to 40% of our recovery from exercise comes during sleep.
