IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH: IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP ENVIRONMENT 

Last year, my husband and I along with two of our close friends went on the “lifetime” trip to Europe. It took weeks of planning (many thanks Christie) but when the time came, we were ready to go! We spent approximately 3 weeks in 4 different countries and explored 12 beautiful and memorable cities. Looking back at our trip, everything was just amazing, except one thing, we forgot to plan time to SLEEP!

Sleep sleep sleep! We all know it’s a requirement for survival. We hear it everywhere, at least I do! Sleep is crucial in a fitness journey, it helps your body recover, repair and builds the muscle tissues. Sleep is fundamental in a child’s and adolescence physical and mental development years as it produces growth hormones and restores energy.

We also know that insufficient sleep can lead to innumerable side effects.

The Canadian Sleep Society states that even on a rare night, the lack of sleep “has a number of immediate consequences including lower alertness, negative mood, reduced motor and visual acuity, longer response times, and impaired attention and memory. Chronic sleep restriction over days and weeks leads to cumulative deficits in alertness, mood and cognitive performance. As well, insufficient sleep can have long-term consequences for health including weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease.”

- Kimberly Cote, PhD, Department of Psychology, Brock University

“Insufficient sleep, has been associated with a higher risk of depression, diabetes, heart attack, hypertension and stroke.”
