Best Sleep Health Resolutions for 2017

Kristen Havens

Believe it or not, 2017 is just a few days away. Right now we’re in that most special time of year — the quiet lull between holiday parties, when we start thinking about our New Year’s Resolutions. Because the season is saturated with overindulgences, most of us put “get in shape” or “get healthier” somewhere near the top of our lists. (Those cheesecakes, pound cakes, rum cakes, and fruitcakes aren’t going anywhere on their own.)

Getting healthier should always be a priority. If you’re like most Americans, you’re probably thinking of starting the new year fresh by making changes to your diet and your exercise routines. But when it comes to losing weight and getting in better physical shape, don’t overlook the importance of sleep.

How much sleep do I need?

Tamara Kaye Sellman, RPSGT, CCSH

With the welcome light of longer days, warmer temperatures, and even some sun breaking through our Pacific Northwest cloud cover on occasion, it’s easy to find inspiration to launch a new diet or ramp up a fitness schedule.

However,  a third practice—getting enough sleep—cannot be ignored if these other goals are to be met with success. Even with healthy eating and exercise, we still cannot thrive without adequate sleep. 

In 2015, the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) made revisions to its guidelines listing recommended hours of sleep by age. Where do you and your family fall on the chart?

Sleep and skin health: Beauty sleep is not a myth

Tamara Kaye Sellman, RPSGT, CCSH

There's no easier, quicker way to highlight the signs of aging than to shortchange yourself a good night's sleep. Aging happens, but when signs of it seem premature, you are best advised to examine why and find solutions.

Americans spend millions of dollars on anti-aging efforts these days. This seems to have changed what we think of as "beauty sleep." Today, the phrase has come to suggest the nightly ritual of applying facial products at bedtime, and not the act of sleeping itself.

But what about swapping that extra time at night, spent on the application of so-called "beauty products," for more sleep? The evidence shows that quality sleep is necessary to defend against premature aging. And sleeping comes free of charge; your body is built to preserve and restore itself during the act of sleeping, after all.

You likely already know how much high-end cosmetics, spa facial products, or beauty services like peels and Botox injections cost.
