Quick summary: Dr. Rashmi Schramm writes about: Insomnia. Difficulty sleeping. Not sleeping enough. It comes up repeatedly in her practice. She talks sleep.

Do we really need to sleep?

 

Insomnia. Difficulty sleeping. Not sleeping enough.

It comes up repeatedly in my practice. Let’s talk about sleep.

 

Some basics you already know:

 

👉🏽 Adults need at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night.😴
👉🏽 2/3rds of adults in the US report sleeping less than 7 hours per night. (In my experience, it’s more like 80%)

What are some of the consequences of chronic sleep loss?

 

 

Increased risk for Alzheimer’s dementia.
Heart disease. Diabetes.
Depression. Anxiety disorders
Increased risk for developing certain cancers.

 

 

 

There are more, but I’m not into fear mongering, so let’s educatedly say sleep is really important. And we aren’t paying much attention to it really.

 

If you’re an insomniac, take heart! I have good news for you.

 

Over these several articles, I’ll give you tips and tricks from my experiences in Ayurvedic lifestyle, meditation 🧘🏾‍♀️ and Yoga Nidra. Traditional medicine simply doesn’t address this issue very well, in my opinion.

🌟 Today’s tip: the best times to sleep…

⚡️10p-6a⚡️

🌈Ayurveda explained this thousands of years ago and now chronobiology studies are confirming this.

We should all aim to be in bed by 10 PM.😴

 

You should know that I am a recovered insomniac. Now I help hundreds of people tap into glorious, rejuvenating sleep. #sleephygiene #sleep #MEDed

 

Sleeping between the hours of 10 PM to 5 AM or 6 AM is more rejuvenating and detoxifying than, say, between Midnight at 8 AM.

So, it matters when you get your 8 hours of sleep.
