While you’re asleep, your body repairs itself meaning that if you’re not getting enough sleep, your chances of developing some chronic diseases is increased. Sleep deficiency also increases your chances of becoming overweight. These days, many people sleep with their mobile phones next to the bed, and though they may go to bed at a reasonable time, they stay awake really late scrolling through social media or news sites. It is a really good idea to leave your phones outside the bedroom. Buy an alarm clock if you need to set a morning alarm, and then limit the number of times you hit snooze! You’re better off setting it a little bit later and allowing yourself more proper sleep than setting it super early just so you can hit snooze ten times. Try to get eight hours’ sleep a night, and if you are currently getting less than this, see how much more energised you feel during the day when you do get enough. SOCIAL MEDIA SAVVY A million likes will never be enough if you don not like yourself. SOCIAL MEDIA’S REACH It is incredible, really, the enormous part social media plays in most of our lives, given that Facebook has only been around since 2004 (and not really discovered by many in New Zealand until around 2007), and Instagram since 2010 (and taken up by many in this country around 2012). Then there is Snapchat, Twitter and the rest. Before these social media platforms came along, we had internet, email and mobile phones (not to mention snail mail and landlines!), but it is now difficult for many to imagine a life pre-social media.
