WHY SLEEP MATTERS
Sleep is SO important for our overall well being. In the book Why We Sleep the author, Matthew Walker, explains that sleep helps us to consolidate memories, learn, and prepare our brain to function optimally for a day full of complex decisions, social interactions, and emotions.
In essence, sleep nourishes the mind!
Further, he explains:
Adequate sleep can help us maintain a slim figure, curb empty cravings, and, of course, increase energy during the day. Consistent, restful sleep can also decrease risk of disease including cancer, heart disease, and neurological degenerative diseases. Sleep also improves mood, encourages creativity, and helps us focus and learn more efficiently throughout the day.
So, if you can, soak it up! You deserve to feel healthy, happy, and function your very best each day!

Hello! My name is Maggie! I am a Marine Scientist that was moved to the New Mexican desert with my family by the Air Force! That move was never in my plan, even in my wildest dreams, and I felt lost in the desert for awhile! Meeting the founding owners of Old Barrel Tea Company and falling in love with the store allowed me to find an oasis in the desert! I had no idea what loose leaf tea was, but now I believe in this company and the product! I hope that I can extend some of the love and knowledge with all of our followers and readers!
