Dr. Perricone Discusses Why A Good Night's Sleep Is Important


In a previous post, I discussed why "beauty sleep" isn't just an expression, and how not getting enough sleep will not only impact your health, but your level of attractiveness as well.

I'm certainly feeling the effect of no sleep this week... 

*Sigh*  

On his website today, Dr. Perricone goes into some depth about why a good night's sleep is important, describing how your hormones come into play when you snooze. Getting adequate amounts of sleep help you to counter the negative effects of stress-induced hormones like cortisol, and in conjunction, induce positive effects from the release of melatonin, which is good for your immune system and health. Read Dr. Perricone's full article here to find out how more sleep will not only keep you looking radiant and youthful, but will help manage your weight as well.

  1. Stress can affect an employee's performance at work, which is why it is important to find a way to relax and manage the stress that work brings. For many people, cigarette smoking is their way of coping with stress. It important to know, however, that smoking does not only worsen stress, but causes adverse health effects. Thanks for sharing information.

  2. Losing excess weight is an obstacle; often the result of the lack of exercise and proper nutrition. Sleep deprivation can affect the body's ability to process information, perform activities and sort out specific foods that may induce weight gain. Thanks for sharing.
