We spend a third of our lives asleep, but by no means this state of hibernation is time wasted!

For my 42nd birthday, my husband sent me (literally) to a meridian massage with a great therapist. Actually I had absolutely no time, because I was planning to cook for my parents and had sooo much to do. However, it later turned out that this very holistic therapy session was to completely change the course of the following year. I was completely out of balance and not grounded at all. The therapist could tell from the moment she saw me. 
As I lay on the massage table, she questioned me about my sleeping habits. At that time, I was not sleeping more than 5 hours a night. I didn't see this as a big problem.My immediate reaction was, "I eat very healthy anyway! To which she replied, "Nutrition is only one of five pillars of health." That was the day I began to see health as a holistic issue. Respecting the circadian rhythm plays an essential role in this!

Why Is Restful Sleep So Crucial?

According to the latest studies, restful sleep plays an extremely important role, especially when it comes to the regeneration of our physical and mental functional mechanisms. Truly restful sleep increases productivity supports fat loss, helps prevent illness, improves concentration and mental clarity. One of my favorites experts in this field is Shawn Stevenson. In his best-selling book Sleep Smarter, he explains all the aspects that need to be considered to optimize sleep quality. Of course, the biohacking guru and owner of BulletproofDave Asprey, must also be mentioned in this context. For him, sleep plays a particularly important role in connection with longevity.

Living in sync with the circadian rhythm is the most crucial factor when talking about the quality of sleep. Still, it is one of the hardest things to fit into our modern lifestyles. So what is the circadian rhythm? I found a great source, that explains it in depth… check here.
