Are you impacted by sleep apnea? Do you Struggle with awake and sleep patterns? Or do you feel you are asleep when you are in fact awake? If you are fighting sleep apnea, there is help and part of the help can come by enjoying a healthy diet every day. Here are 3 reasons, from Dr. Judith Strutz, why making healthy choices can improve your sleep apnea.
1. Not everyone who has sleep apnea is overweight, however maintaining a heathy weight can improve your breathing.
2. While losing weight or maintaining a healthy diet can improve your energy level, sleep apnea can zap your desire to exercise or be energized. Fruits and vegetables can help bring that energy level back up.
3. Feeling healthy and energized can improve your desire to embark on exercise. Exercise can help you reach REM sleep faster. The longer that you are able to stay in REM sleep, without disruptions, the less likely you are to feel tired when you wake up.
