We've talked about the benefits of a good night's sleep before on this blog – and why you should even consider scheduling time for sexual intimacy so you still get a full eight hours of slumber. In addition to helping you feel well-rested for the day ahead, extended periods of rest give your body time to get on with a number of essential functions that promote heart health, memory support and more. Even without these benefits, who would want to walk around feeling groggy and exhausted all day?
If you often struggle to get enough shut eye, there is no time like the present to tackle this issue. Whether you need to speak to a specialist about specific conditions like insomnia or sleep apnea, or simply need to make more time for slumber, a new study has shown yet another reason why you should take action.
According to a press release from Temple University in Philadelphia, a consistent lack of sleep has been linked to a heightened risk of developing Alzheimer's disease – the common form of dementia that is characterized by severe memory loss. This condition is a major concern for Baby Boomers, and though there is no cure, we're learning more about its machinations every day. Many aspects of your lifestyle, from the food you eat to the exercise you take part in, may play a role in memory support, so don't miss out on a chance to give your body and brain what they need!
Stay tuned to learn more about healthy living, and don't forget that engaging in a bit of fun between the sheets may also be a boon for body and mind! Set the mood tonight with a warming lubricant.
