Sleep. Are you getting enough?
If you’re reading this, chances are you understand the importance of nutrition. I often tell people that yes, nutrition is the foundation to your health but right above that are two things, sleep and stress.
Often time those are two things we completely overlook in our lives. If you ever go through a period of time where you can’t lose weight, your stuck, you are gaining weight, you need to address your sleeping and stress management habits.
Here are 5 Health Benefits of Sleep:
1 – Live Longer – Too little sleep is linked to a shorter lifespan and that means less time to eat donuts!
2 – Control Stress – a good night’s slumber is a great way to alleviate stress and help drop cortisol.
3 – Improve Memory – If you are trying to learn something, whether it’s physical or mental, you learn it to a certain point with practice, but something happens while you sleep that makes you learn it better.
4 – Recovery – want to lift more, run faster, get more pull-ups, sleep is when your muscles recover and grow!
5 – Get Creative – when you sleep your brain reorganizes and restructures, giving your mind more room to grow and be free! Think of all the amazing new recipes you’ll come up with!
