It is a common thing we hear, see around us and do. Ignoring our needs for sleep. I ll sleep when I m dead , who need sleep? What is that thing you call sleep?? But what about what our body and mental health have to say? What re the consequences of the lack of sleep? So it seems sleep and mental health are tightly related and some time it can draw us in a vicious circle .

Key points about sleep and mental health
1. Sleep problems may be both a cause and result of mental health conditions.
2. Not enough or poor quality sleep affects your psychological state and can contribute to developing a mental health condition, such as anxiety or depression.
3. And if you have a mental health condition, it can be harder to get good quality sleep, which can contribute to developing a sleep condition, such as insomnia.
4. For these reasons, it's important to learn how to improve your sleep.
5. There are steps you can take on your own and there is also specialised help available.
6. Improving the quality of your sleep can help prevent mental health conditions from developing and have a positive impact on an existing mental health condition.

It is often difficult to realize the reason why we suffering , we often find ourselves adopting bad habits that have repercussions . Who knew that skipping sleep leads to insomnia !??!

Today Wellness Wednesday will be about a little bit of survival natural knowledge. Earth offers all sorts of remedies, sadly our city life has had the effect to make us forget about it. Of course the city does not have those natural resources so we create our own. But acquiring those forgotten remedies might be interesting for some of us!
So today is about Spider webs, let s imagine that we re in the forest, gone for a jog or a long walk and that sadly we tripped and hurt our self badly enough to make a gash in our skin, that is bleeding quit alot. What to do? having no first aid kit. Well that is when spider webs come into action. "Spider webs make for an excellent natural treatment for healing cuts and scrapes! In ancient Greece and Rome, doctors used spider webs to make bandages for their patients. Spider webs supposedly have natural antiseptic and anti-fungal properties, which can help keep wounds clean and prevent infection. It’s also said that spider webs are rich in vitamin K, which helps promote clotting." Nature does offer alot of solutions to our various problems and getting to know them can be a very educational activity.
May the force be with you all
