An ongoing, functional look at all the things affecting BRPT patients, their health and success.)
Looking back at the our February Functional Health newsletter, you will see that the cogs of each area we are talking about function together, not in isolation. Building on the body's need for rest, we need to talk about how the substance of caffeine affects our ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.
Remember, in life we may not always be able to make the big changes. If you have a pressing project, busy work week or children that limit your sleep volume … sleeping 7-9 hours a night may not be a possible goal for you at this time. But if we can shift the QUALITY of time spent in bed, we can start benefiting from what is in our control.
