Sleep is just as important as food, water and air for humans. Not getting enough sleep can cause many side effects including weight gain, memory loss, slow cognitive function, fatigue, depression, mood swings, and weakened immune system. By getting more sleep, you can create better health for yourself, especially when it comes to brain health which ultimately can help you live longer. Through a practice called epigenetics coaching, you can activate certain genes and improve your sleep patterns, resulting in better overall health and well-being.
So, what exactly does that mean? Epigenetics is the study of genetic variations caused by lifestyle choices and environmental surroundings that can change gene expression, either suppressing or activating them, without changing the genetic code itself. Through simple lifestyle modifications, you can maximize your quality of sleep, and increase your overall health and longevity. These lifestyle changes and behavioral modifications are also known as "epigenetics coaching."
There are proactive steps you can take to help you get a good a night of sleep, other than relying on a sleeping aid medication. Try to create a sleep schedule and stick to it. Specifically, try to get into bed around the same time every night and wake up around the same time every day. Your body will get set on a routine. Another good thing to do to improve sleep is to cut off screen time early. Give yourself enough time before bed to let your eyes relax and avoid any screen, including your phone. You can also create a relaxing environment by reading before bed, drinking tea, or listening to soothing music. Including exercise into your daily routine, and eating a healthy diet, can help improve sleep patterns as well. These simple yet effective lifestyle and behavioral changes can greatly improve your quality of sleep. By getting enough sleep, you are activating certain genes which ultimately contribute to longevity and better health.
Improving your sleep patterns will keep your immune system running properly, help relieve stress, help improve mental clarity, and help you feel healthy and young again. All of this can be achieved through epigenetics coaching.
Epigenetics is a relatively new and exciting field and has the potential to help you become your best self. The level of whole body health that can be achieved through better understanding of how external factors regulate gene expression could be higher than you've ever experienced.
