Pam Peeke: We all had issues and excuses when it comes to taking care of our health. Just give me two minutes of your time and I’ll help you figure out what to do with yours. Tell me about your sleep.
Frann: Not as good as it used to be.
Pam Peeke: What do you mean by that? What’s going on with your sleep?
Frann: I don’t know. I used to be able to like really sleep through the night and sometimes I get up two or three o’clock in the morning and I can't go back to sleep.
Pam Peeke: Okay and was this mostly menopausal or?
Pam Peeke: Here is something that’s wonderful. I'm going to wrap all this together. Here’s the bottom line. By eating better whole foods or getting your physical activity in this glorious, wonderful place. I mean heck this whole city is one big gym, right. By doing that your sleep improves.
Pam Peeke: So you see you get a win-win situation, eating better, feeling and being energized and your sleep is going to be better and when your sleep is better your immune system is improved and that’s very, very important, okay. It’s important because if you cut it short, if you're not getting good sleep, it affects your appetite, it affects your weight, everything. So you know what you need to do, we need to practice. Okay, here it goes, right here.
It’s a beautiful day, kick your head back. Alright, forget about the fact that there is million cars and people staring at us right now. Who cares? We’re going to go to sleep. Are you ready?
Frann: I love it.
Pam Peeke: Three, two, one and we’re just ready dead asleep. Here we go. Deep breath first, blow out, three, two, one. I'm asleep. Well done.
Frann: Thank you.
Pam Peeke: Alright. Frann, go on out there and get some good sleep. For more of my no nonsense bottom line help message, log on to my blog at Prevention.com/60-second health.
