Since Daylight Saving Time (in the United States) begins today (March 13, 2022), this is a good week to talk about sleep and rest (https://adventistvegetariandiabetics.com/getting-started/get-adequate-sleep/).
There is a definite connection between sleep and diabetes, according to sources we have researched. Too little sleep can raise your diabetes risk. It is said that if you need an alarm clock to wake up, you are probably not getting enough sleep. Because, if you were, you would wake up before the alarm clock rings. Can you get too much sleep? “The amount of sleep you get—or lack thereof—can make a big difference in your health. According to a recent study, getting too much sleep is just as bad for your heart as not getting enough.” Read more details about sleep, such as circadian rhythms. Is it true that “every hour of sleep before midnight is worth two after midnight”? Review The Law of Health #7.
