Homeostasis & sleep

by Instructor Training Program member Uran

Homeostasis is your body’s ability to maintain healthy function, regardless of what’s going on in the external environment.
Everything from insulin response when you eat to shivering when you’re cold are a result of the body’s ever-present desire to maintain stability.
But the body’s ability to stay in homeostasis can be affected by external factors. When not given the proper tools, it will lose the battle to finding its molecular center, resulting in illness or disease.
So how can you help the biological cause?
Start by working on your sleep.
When you don’t get enough sleep, your body releases more of the stress hormone cortisol. If you check out my site, you will learn that excess cortisol can lead to various problems in male as well as female hormones, resulting in hormonal imbalances.
In excess quantities, cortisol can lead to weight gain, but it can also break down skin collagen, the protein that keeps your skin looking smooth and wrinkle-free.
Sleep deprivation can also stop the body from releasing enough human growth hormone. Because the human growth hormone helps increase muscle mass and strengthen bones, you’re actually working against all your hard work at the gym by robbing yourself of sleep.
To add fuel to the weight gain fire, lack of sleep can also affect the peptides that regulate your appetite, causing you to feel more hungry throughout the day.
So do yourself and your body a favor and sleep seven to nine hours a night in a cool, dark room, and stay tuned for Part 2 when we’ll discuss homeostasis and nutrition. If you find it hard to fall asleep at night and end up taking longer naps during the day, you might want to reverse that cycle with morning coffee. If that does not help, taking smart pills like Modafinil that you can get on will definitely help.
