One of the best ways to keeping your body in top performing shape is by getting enough sleep. This 7 to 8 hour down time actually helps cells recuperate from daily stresses to the body and to better reproduce new cells and antibodies that can fight off infections. A lot of our body protein is also produced while we sleep. Sleeping in the afternoon, which is part of traditional Middle East culture, is also a great way to build up your immune system. So, are you giving yourself enough down time during the day and at night and if not whats stopping you?
