WHY YOU NEED SLEEP...AS MUCH SLEEP AS POSSIBLE
For this final post, I am writing about the magic of sleep.
Sleep is so important that the Paleo author Robb Wolf says that if you want to “kill someone quickly…take away their sleep.” According to NSCA trainer and author Ben Greenfield, "Studies have shown demonstrable brain damage in sleep-deprived rats, primarily due to a severe lack of neurogenesis (regrowth or rebuilding of new brain neurons) from rampant levels of sleep-deprivation induced cortisol."
Why sleep anyway? Well, it is time for your body to repair itself on a cellular level, and for your brain to re-set itself on a neurological level.
Have you ever wondered what is happening inside your body while you sleep? This great video shows what happens every hour with your delicate hormonal system and why each hour of sleep is so very important. (If your goals are weight loss...you will really want to watch this!)
Now, go get some sleep!
BRILLIANT. EASY. BESPOKE.
