How Pets show us the healthiest way to get up in the Morning

What can our PETS teach us about how to get up in the morning?

    According to sleep medicine expert Dr. Joanne Getsy, pets RARELY ever start their day in a panic!

    They don’t scramble out of bed to turn off an alarm…… and then rush to hit the shower before begging someone for food and a walk! Instead, most pets wake up slowly and spend time stretching and yawning before getting going.

     And Dr. Getsy says we humans could benefit from taking the same slow approach each morning:

     First, because stretching BEFORE getting out of bed helps gently increase your heart rate and blood pressure. And that’s important since the sudden switch to being active – after being unconscious while asleep – makes us THREE TIMES more likely to have a heart attack in the morning, compared to later in the day.

     Plus, slow waking causes less of a spike to your blood sugar and adrenaline levels. And by increasing your energy slowly in the morning, you’ll be less likely to experience a dramatic energy CRASH in the afternoon.

    There you go.  What our PETS can teach us about how to spend our mornings.
