Good evening once again this is Dr. Harrison Campbell from Restoration Health at Premier Sugar Land Chiropractors office. Tonight we will be discussing the importance of sleep in mental and physical health so that a healthy and happy lifestyle can be obtained. Now we will not be discussing sleeping positions and such in this podcast, that will be its own separate podcast.
Sleep is not only required by the body it is very important to maintain good mental health and good physical health. As many sugar land chiropractors will tell you the proper amount of sleep is approximately eight hours. Now in that eight hours the sleep we are actually looking for the rim sleep or rapid eye movement only accounts of a fraction of this time but is the most important part of this eight hours of sleep. Rim sleep is the sleep pattern where you are actually resting both mind and body.
The importance of sleep cannot be overstated. Without adequate amount of sleep physically and emotionally you will wear down and break down. Any sugar land chiropractors you see will tell you the exact same thing in regards to the importance of sleep.
Approximately eight hours of sleep is required each night in order to be physically and emotionally rested. It is during sleep at the brain convert short term memories throughout the day into long-term memories and allows the body to physically recover from the micro-injuries whichever occurred throughout the day. Without these eight hours, the body does not have the time to recuperate and recover from the micro traumas it undergoes throughout a given day.
This physical recovery is generally understood but the mechanics behind it are often vastly overlooked. Whether youíve hit the gym the day before performed Harvey played a sport or simply going to work injuries occur quite regularly. Whether this is micro tears and muscle fibers strain on ligaments joint irritation and And impact on the joints these micro traumas occur more often than you think and then the more regular interval than you think.
