Eyeing The Right Eye Professional? Look At This!

“A Good Night’s Sleep? Don’t Need It, Thank You.”

“A Good Night’s Sleep? Don’t Need It, Thank You.”

In offices, classrooms and coffee shops across America, people can be heard boasting, they “function well on very little sleep.”

Many even brag how they never get more than a few hours – night after night. Is this a good thing?

The reality is, consistently failing to get an appropriate amount of sleep may result in significant and even life-threatening issues later on in life. Here are some of them…

Major Health Problems

Failing to get an appropriate amount of sleep renders people more vulnerable to a range of issues including…

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes

Cognitive Issues

Thinking and learning processes depend largely on a good night’s sleep. Lack of sleep hampers a person’s ability to concentrate, reason and solve problems.

In addition, different sleep cycles are needed to consolidate and make sense of memories and information collected during the course of a given day.

In the absence of appropriate sleep, this consolidation cannot occur and a person will not be able to recall or remember what was previously experienced or learned. Of course, this can affect academic performance, if not corrected.


Check out this video, 25 Scary and Surprising Effects of Sleep Deprivation – it might just change your mind about living normally on very little sleep!


Mental Health Problems

A considerable number of people who fail to get a proper amount of sleep end up suffering from depression. In some cases, the depression is persistent and does not readily resolve.

Moreover, a significant sleep deficit over an extended period of time can result in a person actually suffering psychotic symptoms. In other words, a person no longer experiences normal thought processes and endures abnormal perceptions of reality.

Weight Gain

A 2004 research study reported by the Mayo Clinic and other institutions revealed that people who get less than six hours of sleep per night are 30 percent more likely to be obese.

A lack of the appropriate amount of sleep appears to heighten cravings for high-carbohydrate and high-fat foods.

What Can You Do?

Here are some starting points for ensuring you are getting a great night’s sleep…

  • NUMBER ONE: Be objective. Don’t kid yourself about your own habits.
  • NUMBER TWO: Ask those around you if, they notice things like restlessness or snoring while you are asleep.
  • NUMBER THREE: If you suspect a sleeping disorder like sleep apnea, visit your dentist, orthodontist, doctor or other practitioner to get tested.

Sleep is a pillar of health – make sure you get enough!

Da Balm! 4 DIY Recipes To Take Away The Chap In Your Lip

Da Balm! 4 DIY Recipes To Take Away The Chap In Your Lip

Do you suffer from dry, chapped lips? You’re not alone! So do millions of people.

For many, nothing is more soothing than a good lip balm to relieve the discomfort. Sure, you can buy a tube in any drug store, but DIY lip balms are inexpensive, fun to concoct, and they make a great little gift on a tight budget (hopefully the recipient wasn’t expecting a BMW).

We scoured the web for the most enticing homemade lip balm recipes, and we found some great ones! But first, let’s check in with the folks at Brain Stuff to learn what causes chapped lips in the first place – the answer may surprise you!

But I’m in a hurry, man.

Looking for a recipe that hits the spot, but doesn’t take a lot of time? Let’s hear it out with Brooke from WhatsUpMoms for a 5-minute formula.

And now for something completely different…

Looking for a look that’ll make your look look more “out there”? (That’s a lot of looks!) Check in with Sara from SaraBeautyCorner. She may have the answer – lip balms made from candy and crayon wax. (Say what?!)

How’s coconut-orange sound?

If you’re like us, sometimes you just get that urge for coconut orange lip balm. Here’s Sister Rosa with a simple way to prepare a flavorful balm you’ll love.

And then, there was shea butter and almond oil … ahhh …

Looking for the perfect luxuriously soft and soothing lip balm formula? Join yoga teacher and wellness coach, Jennifer Partridge (she’s from Australia, mate), as she shows you how easy it is to make.

Now go do lip balm!

Good luck! May you find happiness, healthy-ness, and may your lips always be the moist-est.
