How Scent Can Make a Difference in Your Ability to Sleep

Posted by Lisa Floyd on Oct 11, 2018 10:16:25 AM

Our sense of smell is one of the fastest ways for our brains to bring back memories of a certain location and the feelings we have about that place. This happens because smells go directly to our conscious brain instead of being filtered through the thalamus like our other 4 senses.

How Quality Sleep Can Help Ward Off The Cold or Flu

Posted by Lisa Floyd on Apr 4, 2018 9:20:00 AM

According to studies cited by the Oklahoman, getting to sleep will help you avoid catching a cold or flu. One figure suggests that if you get less than five or six hours of sleep a night you are four times more likely to get a cold or flu than if you get your full seven to eight hours.

Having a cold or the flu can impact sleep quality and set up a vicious cycle.
