Let’s dive into the fabulous world of quality sleep and its magical powers of longevity! We all know just how terrible it is to just toss and turn in bed, trying to figure out WHY you just can’t fall asleep. Usually there isn’t even anything keeping you up, just simply cannot get there. But on the flip side to that, picture this: you’re cozied up in your bed, the softest sheets embracing you like a fluffy cloud. Ah, the sweet symphony of quality sleep! You know what I am talking about, right?
Just know, studies have shown that quality sleep isn’t just about feeling refreshed in the morning; it’s about adding years to your life! When you drift off into dreamland, your body goes into clean up mode. During quality sleep, your cells are busy repairing and regenerating, cleaning out, throwing away, and rebuilding. This repair work helps to keep your immune system in top shape, ready to fend off anything that may be going around. Also, this is the time that our brain is organizing memories and clearing out all the unnecessary clutter from the day, which can help in optimizing your cognitive functions. Quality, deep sleep, can also keep your heart strong and healthy, regulating blood pressure, reducing inflammation, and even lowering the risk of heart diseases
Studies have shown that people who consistently get quality sleep tend to live longer, healthier lives. It’s like adding bonus levels to the game of life, with each hour of quality sleep stacking the odds in your favor.
It’s not just about feeling well-rested; it’s about giving your body the gift of longevity, one night at a time. So how exactly am I supposed to do that? (I’m sure you’re asking). At BioCure, we have put together the following protocol, to give our patients the best sleep hygiene possible and in turn yield the most out of the time spent sleeping.
The best sleep hygiene practices involve the following:
- Maintain a consistent sleep schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same time each day, even on weekends
- Create a relaxing bedtime routine to signal to your body that it’s time to wind down, such as reading a book or taking a warm bath. (we encourage you to try the NuCalm app)
- Ensure your sleep environment is conducive to rest by keeping the room dark, cool, and quiet
- Limit exposure to screens before bed, as the blue light can disrupt your sleep cycle
- Avoid stimulants like caffeine and heavy meals close to bedtime
- Regular exercise can promote better sleep, but it’s best done earlier in the day
At BioCure, our goal is to make YOU the best version of YOU that you can be. So try these easy steps to create a rock-solid sleep routine. Your future self will thank you. There are also certain Peptides that can help with the production of certain hormones that help you sleep deeper, recover faster, and take the most advantage of the time spent in bed. Sleep is only ONE component of improving health and increasing longevity.
