[CHAT] zzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZSleep

Sleep is more than just a resting mechanism it is a way your body biologically repairs and prepares you for the day ahead. It is important for a number of reasons including mental sharpness, emotional stability and physical health. Many disorders and diseases are related to inefficient sleep and poor sleep quality.

 

I once heard someone say that they hated sleep because it was boring and a waste of time. I just could not wrap my head around that. Sleep is so essential it is like the best way to forget all your problems for a while (unless they creep up into your dreams) and it is also an amazing way to gain energy and reboot the system. Without a proper night's rest, you find people sleeping in very strange places like benches, on the trains, at work, in toilets or at school, how awkward!! Smiley Happy

 

So this week, we are going to talk about sleep, how can we make sure to get amazing sleep everyday and we will talk about the impact sleep has on us. Come and share your stories about sleep and how you manage sleep and mental health. 

 

There are some people that believe, sleeping is for the weak, not knowing that sleep could save your life. Having poor sleeping patterns increases the risk of having high blood pressure, heart attacks, heart failure, strokes and not to mention a major impact on your mental health. Have you ever noticed that when you don't get sleep, you are easily annoyed, say/do things you wouldn't do and make lots of mistakes, being clumsy, lose concentration. Sleep affects so many different areas in our lives. 

 

Join us to discuss all things zzZzzSLEEP on Monday 15th June at 8pm AEST. We want to hear from you, how you feel when you’ve had a good night’s sleep or a terrible pillow-covers-the-face “I don’t want to get out of bed” sleep.

Ummmmmmmmmm maybe like 8?

 

B) What do you think the connection is between missing a nights sleep and drinking driving?

I'm not sure about this connectio... but I certainly wouldn't want to see the effects of no sleep and drink driving together...


C) What is the ideal length of a nap?

A year! haha Smiley Tongue Nah maybe 30 minutes!!

 

 

These are cool questions. Makes my brain think!

Re: [CHAT] zzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZSleep

It's suprising that no sleep makes you the same as someone who is drunk. It's really weird to think about. I guess thats why the police pay so much attention to those powernap adds on the side of the road???
