There are so many people who are run down and have various illnesses not realizing that most disease starts from stress. I also want to include mental health in the equation. How many of us would have healthier mindsets along with bodies with the proper care of resting?
A survey by Sealy in the UK found that people who were well rested reported having brighter eyes (42%), a brighter complexion (21%), clearer skin (20%), less wrinkles (17%) and improved skin condition (11)% (Nbc News). Yes, there is such a thing as Beauty Sleep! I recommend getting 7-8 hours nightly or even taking cat naps when you can. And I'm not just talking about sleep, even conscious resting of being awake and not doing anything but relaxing and taking the time to breathe is an act of self-love. I highly recommend at least 1 day of deliberate "laziness" to recharge your battery.
