Sleep Recovery Practice with Mike WattsMay 12, 2020
One of my favorite things about wellness is how everything is connected. You can't address one area without bringing up something else so much so that it becomes a ripple effect.
Which is why you can find me going down these rabbit holes from time to time...
>>The best thing about wellness is that everyone has their own version of what that looks like and only they have control over it.<<
Oftentimes we make excuses as to why we went for that bag of chips, put off working out for the third time that week or ignoring how our lack of sleep is affecting our daily life.
But ladies, you don't understand how it's all connected until you bring awareness to it! When you say, you want to improve your quality of sleep, then start working on habits to do so without overstressing it.
>>Because anything is possible for your body.<<
Let me introduce you to human-performance master Mike Watts.
Mike has nothing but experience when it comes to body recovery and sleep. He has worked with a countless number of athletes, been at the pinnacle of athlete performance for the past 15-years and works to understand sleep better than anyone on the planet.
Mike is about to make some wellness connections on my podcast *so turn that volume up!*
It’s important to distinguish the difference between REM sleep and deep sleep. Ladies, let me tell you it will help you understand your sleep cycle so better when you understand the difference.
- Deep sleep works to restore our bodies. When you're in deep sleep, you're restoring your cells during this anabolic state of growth. Your deep sleep is the building block to help your body recover.
- REM sleep plays a more cognitive role. It gives us the ability to filter through the information that we do or don't need. In a way, it's giving the brain a chance to detox.
