Forty Winks

Greater Rochester Chiropractic’s latest newsletter (from reports and research from 2010, 2016, and earlier this year) talked of one of my favorite, healthful, beautiful things, sleep! They know, and relayed, that the minimum, in general, amount of sleep for us is 7 hours daily. A lesser amount will likely lead to insufficient physiological functioning. Sufficient rest enables our bodies to recover from daily stresses and strains and repair damaged cells and tissues. Over time, getting less sleep than we need results in muscle and joint stiffness and tension, otherwise unexplained aches and pains, impaired digestion with a wide range of symptoms, emotional irritability, and disordered cognitive function. Eight hours is great if you can get it, so they highly suggest discipline yourself to find, and keep, the rest that’s right for you!
