A vital indicator of overall health and well-being
We spend up to one-third of our lives asleep.
Sleep is not only comforting but is also essential for our normal cognitive functioning and for our survival.
Sleep is a critical time for overall body healing, regulation, and restoration.
Disordered sleep can affect blood pressure, heart rate, mental status, hormonal and immunological function, and a host of other critical aspects of our normal physiology.
Healthy sleep is a vital building block for wellness and optimal performance.
Sleep plays a huge role in our ability to process subconscious thought, think creatively, and make complex decisions. It’s important to experience all stages of sleep, especially deep sleep (stages 3 and 4) for mental processing.
There is research that shows people often sleep better when they’re close to the ocean, lakes or rivers. In many cases stress, anxiety or hormonal imbalance can be the cause of an unrestful sleep, all of which can be eased by simply spending a little time seaside and soaking in natural sunlight and fresh air.
