Sleep and Sickness

Sleep is so important for health of the mind and body. When I don’t get enough sleep (8-9 hours), my head spins in the morning and my body is weakened. My immune system gets depleted and I am susceptible to colds. A textbook example of this was this past weekend. I had not been getting the requisite 8 hours of sleep the end of last week and then I stayed up very late both Friday night and Saturday night. The result is that I now have a cold. It’s annoying, but another lesson on how important it is for me to get quality sleep. Much to my dismay, the sickness has precluded exercise yesterday and today. Hopefully a great night of sleep will allow me to get back to the gym tomorrow. With that said, good night!

    This is my standard make sure you are getting enough zinc response. I can’t help it. It’s a Dr Mom thing. Anyhow you can have up to 40mg a day. You can get flavored lozenges make sure they are not the cheapy ones, the ones that are too cheap usually taste gross. Feel better soon.
