Healthy Sleeping Habits

Sleep is one of the most basic of human needs. During sleep your body repairs and regenerates itself. Good sleep refreshes, restores and rejuvenates your body and soul.

It is not unusual for patients to claim that KKT helped them improve on their sleep. The spine does play a role in allowing for restful sleep. The opposite however is also true – disturbed sleep disturbs the spine.

Did you know… throughout the ages, all gifted and spiritually advanced souls have made a habit of waking up in the latter part of the night to spend in deep prayer/meditation and selfless thoughts. Today we appreciate that the bodies’ neuroendocrine system is positively impacted by this practice. Interestingly, such individuals did not sleep after sunrise, until the early afternoon short siesta.

Healthy sleep habits are directly related to good health and well being. Follow these simple steps to achieve healthier sleep:

  • Sleep on your right side with your legs drawn up only slightly and a pillow between your legs. This is the preferred sleeping position and should be maintained for as long as possible.
  • Immediately refrain from sleeping on your stomach.
  • Avoid sleeping on couches or recliners.
  • Rotate and flip your mattress every month.
  • Pillow selection should be based on one criteria – comfort. When you place your head on the pillow, you should feel a sense of immediate comfort without having to adjust it. Should the pillow require adjusting, start with a thinner than required pillow and place folded towels into the pillow case to raise it to the desired height.
  • Ensure that your neck is in line with the rest of your spine.
  • If you have any doubts about possible teeth grinding during your sleep, please visit your dentist immediately, and have a mouth guard made to prevent this. It is unfortunately a common concern and will destabilize your spine.

Remember, the KKT healing and regeneration process is dependent on our bodies getting a sufficient amount of quality sleep.
