6 Reason To Improve You Sleep As Part of Your PCOS Care

You finally fell asleep! It is a miracle...until you wake. The clock says 1 am and now you cannot get back to sleep. Your mind starts to wonder and then before you know it, it is now 4 am.

I got to tell you, this is something that for many years, I would struggle with. Maybe you are in the same boat now. 

It took me putting in multiple changes over time to work on finally getting to sleep and then by happy accident figuring out how to stay asleep. 

Though many of us never really take working on this area very seriously. In fact, it is not uncommon to have people say things like...I will sleep when I am dead.

Well not getting good quality sleep will most definitely help you get closer to that final breath if you do not address it. 

For PCOS women, it is an even bigger piece to helping us in our thriving with PCOS journey. So here are some reasons to consider focusing on better sleep as part of your PCOS management and care: 

  1. Weight Reduction: Leptin levels (your satiety hormone) balance out and ghrelin (hunger hormone) decreases with quality and proper amount of sleep.

  1. Mood Improvement: adequate sleep helps with your response to stress as well as mood and emotion management.

  1. Inflammation Reduction: with quality sleep, you have less inflammation, which leads to overall better gut health. If you have issues like IBS on top of PCOS, you will really appreciate the benefits of better sleep. 

  1. Decreased Blood Pressure: By getting better sleep you will decrease your risk of developing hypertension and thereby improving your overall heart health. 

  1. Hormone Balance...including insulin: listen to the quick video, the first few minutes touch base on this area

  1. Decrease Carb Cravings: Better sleep helps support your insulin levels. When you have balanced insulin levels, your cravings for quick sources of energy (aka carbs) are more balanced rather than out of control.

All reasons, for me at least, that I found to be very true in my healing journey. Again things that were never really discussed when working to improve my PCOS symptoms. 

Hopefully this is not you, nor does it have to be. If better sleep is a goal of yours for your health journey, then I have a course that you will find of service to you. 

It is steps to help you get started down the path of creating better sleep for yourself.

Looking forward to seeing your sleep improve! 

Wishing you Better Sleep,
