Not Sleeping? You NEED to Read This

It’s a classic case of the chicken or the egg.

The connection between sleep and diseases like obesity and diabetes are well documented.

Most people believe that sleep problems are a side effect of these conditions… but research shows that it’s often the other way around.

But things are about to get worse for folks with sleep problems. 

Because scientists have recently uncovered some SHOCKING findings about how lack of sleep impacts your brain…. 

And it could even set you up for some SERIOUS health issues.

A handful of studies presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscienceshow just how much lack of sleep impacts the brain.

One study showed that sleep deprivation increases your risk of suffering from anxiety. One reason is because deep, slow-wave sleep helps calm overactive brain regions. 

Lack of sleep has also been shown to trigger the kind of brain activity associated anxiety.

That makes lack of sleep a DOUBLE WHAMMY when it comes to anxiety.

But that might be the least of your problems… 

Another study shows sleep problems can set you up for ALZHIEMER’S… or make your symptoms WORSE.

That’s because sleep disruptions impact your circadian rhythms (your body’s natural clock). 

These interruptions cause a type of inflammation that can up your Alzheimer’s risk… and increase symptoms in folks already suffering from it. 

Many studies show that lack of sleep can cause major problems in these patients like making them more likely to fall… more agitated… and even increasing their memory problems.

In fact, sleep problems alone are often the reason Alzheimer’s patients end up in a long-term care facility!

Studies like these are important because they shed light on new ways to treat brain disorders like anxiety and Alzheimer’s.

A good place to start is by making sure you’re getting good, restorative sleep.

And it couldn’t be easier.

First, spend time outside in the sun, especially in the morning. This simple step will help set your circadian rhythm for the day. 

Second, take steps to limit your exposure to blue light at night (that’s the kind of light emitted by your TV, laptop, and cell phone), which will help maintain your circadian rhythm.

The best way to do this is by wearing amber blue-light blocking glasses starting at 8 p.m. You can get them at Amazon.com. 

To a brighter day,
