Dr. Ungvarsky’s Advice For Improving Sleep Habits

by Sara Vogt - September 30, 2021

To sleep or not to sleep? Recent studies have shown that during the pandemic many of us are struggling to get the healthy, consistent sleep we need.

On this edition of Movin’ Together Sara Vogt interviews Dr. Kyle Ungvarsky of the Laurel Health Center who gave us some answers on how to get back on track with our sleep.

Here are a few of his suggestions:

  • Go outside and enjoy moving activities, such as running or walking
  • Work toward arising and retiring the same time each day
  • Turning off phones, tablets and tv’s before bed
  • Schedule at least seven to nine hours a night for sleep

When you sleep, your body undergoes a series of changes that enable the rest that is vital to your overall health. Sleep allows the brain and body to slow down and engage in processes of recovery, promoting better physical and mental performance the next day and over the long term.

Researchers say getting good sleep can also strengthen your immune system. In a recent study, scientists discovered that quality sleep can bolster the T-cells in your body that fight infection. Your immune system is your best defense against catching a disease. So if you want your immune system to work optimally, you need to sleep optimally.
