Which one are you?
I’m a “Freefaller.” Not sure it fits, but interesting to think about!
Next to weight gain and loss, sleep is one of the most talked about issues in wellness media. Whether you are a “Starfish,” or a “Foetus” or a “Freefaller” like me, taking care to get enough rest is a big key to taking care of your health as an adult.
When we sleep, we produce human growth hormone. As children, this is important for growth and brain development. As adults, it’s the best anti-aging and body repair tool we have. When we don’t get enough sleep, we exhaust our adrenals. When we add caffeine to combat the fatigue, we exhaust them even further and end up in a constant “tired but wired” state.
