Welcome to Day 5!
We will be discussing more activities that allow you to spend time in your PSNS - rest and sleep.
Our culture pushes us to be on the go all of our waking moments. This creates too much time in our sympathetic nervous system - creates an imbalance. This does not allow our body to heal. We need time to balance with the PSNS
PSNS: When our body is not exerting cortisol, we are relaxed, and our blood is shunted to the GI system, detoxing systems, cell healing, and more.
Action: Pick times in the day, week and month to get into the PSNS.
This is needed for good health, now and in the future.
If you have any chronic issues, it is even more important.
Find the time to get 7-9 hours of sleep.
Maintain a schedule as best as you can - even on weekends.
Check for OSA if needed.
