Sleep is actually the best medicine. I am reminded of this every Saturday when my kids sleep in.
We need to sleep to grow and heal. If we don’t sleep well it is as though we are not eating our veggies or protein. How can we expect ourselves to be happy and healthy? There are numerous articles reporting the importance of sleep and healing. If you suffer from recurrent infections, digestive disturbances or repetitive muscle injuries, ask yourself if you are sleeping well. Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep per night, while children need 10-12 hours in a 24 hour period.
