Sleep Health

Sleep is the body’s natural healer.



 Without adequate sleep and rest you cannot function properly. It is important to make lifestyle choices that promote wellbeing through prioritising sleep. We spend about one third of our lives sleeping, and this is because our body needs to restore our energy and heal while we sleep, to remain healthy and alert in our waking hours. Your sleeping environment should promote a space for relaxation, with a cool room temperature if possible, or a temperature that makes you feel comfortable to sleep. Darkness is another essential element to promote the right environment for sleep. 



Melatonin is a hormone that the Pineal gland in the brain produces in response to darkness, and natural levels of melatonin in the blood are highest at night. High levels can help you fall asleep. It helps with the timing of the circadian rhythm, which is your 24hr clock, and with sleep. Being exposed to light at night can block melatonin production. Melatonin lets you know when it’s time to sleep, wake, and eat. It regulates your body temperature, Blood Pressure and some hormone levels. Melatonin also has other roles in the body beyond sleep. So the production of this wonderful chemical is beneficial for keeping you well.

Scientific Research tells us that poor sleep affects about 50-70 million Americans, and The Australian College of Physician’s (RACP) stated “inadequate sleep is experienced by between 33-45% of Australian adults”.
