  • Can Sleep Help you Slim Down?

    Dieters are always looking for a special edge, some secret that will help them shed those last few pounds or provide a jump start to losing weight. Many who have heard headlines about the relationship between sleep and weight loss have given thought to just hiding out in their beds, pulling a sort of Rip Van Winkle act in which they put themselves to sleep for days and then wake up to find that their bodies have magically burned off the fat that they’ve tried so hard to lose, but unfortunately, that’s not the way things work. In fact, sleeping too much can be just as harmful to your metabolism as sleeping too little. Continue reading

  • Proponents of Sleep Are Speaking Up

    Seems as if everywhere you look there are articles about the many business leaders who claim to thrive on minimal sleep. Recent headlines in the news have included, “19 Successful People Who Barely Sleep,” “The secret of success: Needing less sleep?” and “Do history’s greatest figures owe their success to sleeping LESS?” No matter how many of these articles are published, science says that it is unlikely that the people who are bragging about getting by on minimal sleep are in fact sleeping as little as they claim, and if they are then they are part of an exceedingly rare cohort of people who are known as short sleepers. For the rest of us, the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep every night is exactly what we need. The good news is that more and more captains of industry have decided to speak up and give equal time to the message that sleep is a good thing. Continue reading

  • Sleep and Transition

    For some of us, sleep deprivation is not a constant companion. We stick to a regular sleep schedule, going to sleep at pretty much the same time each night and waking up at roughly the same time each morning, often without needing our alarm clock as a prompt. We are lucky, and probably don’t realize it, but it is something that we should not take for granted, particularly because transitions in the world around us can quickly take our sleep quality away. The more you are aware of the fact that unavoidable changes in your life, whether expected or unexpected, can have an impact on your sleep habits, the better you are able to prepare yourself for that happening.

  • Sleep Continues to Slip

    It’s been over a year since the Centers for Disease Control sounded the alarm about sleep. At that time, their researchers referred to sleep deprivation as a public health epidemic, and warned that if Americans continued to chronically get less than seven hours of sleep per night, the results would be seen in increased accidents on the road and increased health problems.

  • Innovative Product Provides Better Sleep for Travellers

    If you have ever tried to fall asleep while traveling, whether in a car, an airplane or train, then you probably know that it can be difficult, painful, or both. It is a challenge to fall asleep in a cramped, often-uncomfortable seat, especially if you are situated between two other travelers, and if you do manage to fall asleep you often run the risk of either waking up with your head on a stranger’s shoulder or of finding yourself suffering from an extremely painful neck. Now a group of entrepreneurs from Norway have come up with a solution to this ubiquitous problem. They have invented a product called the “relax ALLY.” Continue reading
