Most people say that we need 7 or 8 hours sleep every night…. one expert said: “Any more or less can increase your risk for serious conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and even death. Getting enough quality sleep is also key to a healthy lifestyle.” Note that he says more is just as bad as less....
But philip’s web-site is about weight loss... so… it is good to know that sleep is very important in weight loss… poor sleep habits can keep one “fat” …. sleep also helps us to exercise more, burn more calories and stay healthy… all necessary to get rid of weight…. so… I would suggest that you not tweak this one too much.
20 to 30 min naps are also great, especially as we grow older… but… we need a regular break from “all the stuff“ that is going on in our lives. We also need naps to break the hold of the things that hold us.. the addictions, dominations and obsessions… especially the domination of food in our lives. Check my Obsessions page next.
I will also say more about this on my God page … because… there is nothing I have ever experienced that tops my experiences when I “enter into His rest” ….
