Nice job today playing full court basketball and mixing in squats and lunges. Some of you will be sore in the morning. Get to bed early tonight. Read below to learn more about the healing power of sleep. Your body will thank you for it. Go to bed early on Sunday through Thursday and stay up later on the weekends.
Healing Power Of Sleep
*Spend 1/3 of our lives asleep.
*Children need about 12 hours of sleep a night, Teenagers require much more sleep than adults about 9.5+ hours a night because of tremendous changes occurring in their bodies.
*teenagers tend to feel more alert at night and unable to function well early in the morning. With early school start times this can lead to an accumulated sleep debt of around 3 hours per night.
*when the sun rises, cortisol levels peak then taper off as the sun sets, reaching their lowest level after dark. This daily fluctuation is intended to help our bodies know when to be active and when to rest.
*ideal rest occurs between 10pm and 6am.
*sleep during the hours of 10pm-2am repairs our bodies. Immune cells are released to seek out and destroy cancer cells, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful agents.
*between 2am-6am, sleep lets our bodies enter a stage of psychic regeneration(brain), and the immune system is supported by chemicals released by the brain.
