Why the GOD sleeping? ( Anantha sayanam)

Regular sleep is necessary for survival. Sleep is a dynamic time of healing and growth for people. For example, during stages 3 and 4, or slow-wave sleep, growth hormone levels increase, and immune function changes. In some studies, sleep deprivation led to a decrease in immune function.

The National Sleep Foundation maintains that eight to nine hours of sleep for adult humans is optimal and that sufficient sleep benefits alertness, memory and problem solving, and overall health, as well as reducing the risk of accidents.

A widely publicized 2003 study performed at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine demonstrated that cognitive performance declines with fewer than eight hours of sleep. Sleep deprivation can adversely affect brain function. A 2001 Study at Harvard's Medical Institute suggested that sleep deprivation may be linked to more serious diseases, such as heart disease.

Several large studies using nationally representative samples suggest that the obesity epidemic in Europe and the United States might have as one of its causes a corresponding decrease in the average number of hours that people are sleeping.

The findings suggests that this might be happening because sleep deprivation might be disrupting hormones that regulate glucose metabolism and appetite. The association between sleep deprivation and obesity appears to be strongest in young and middle-age adults. Listen to Martin Pytela discuss the latest health issues 

Tips for a good night's sleep:

The following ten tips can help you achieve sleep and the benefits it provides. These tips are intended for "typical" adults, but not necessarily for children or persons experiencing medical problems.

1. Maintain a regular bed and wake time schedule including weekends.
2. Establish a regular, relaxing bedtime routine such as 
soaking in a hot bath or hot tub and then reading a book 
or listening to soothing music.
3. Create a sleep-conducive environment that is dark, quiet,
comfortable and cool.
4. Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows.
5. Use your bedroom only for sleep and s*x.
6. Finish eating at least 2-3 hours before your regular bedtime.
7. Exercise regularly. It is best to complete your workout at
least a few hours before bedtime.
8. Avoid caffeine (e.g. coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate)
close to bedtime. It can keep you awake.
9. Avoid nicotine (e.g. cigarettes, tobacco products). 
Used close to bedtime, it can lead to poor sleep.
10. Avoid alcohol close to bedtime.

To enhance the quality of your sleep clear your room of all electronics and use a geopathic influence eliminator. Use a negative ion generator - Crystal Salt lamps are very effective for that.
