Sleep Your Way to Fitness
Sounds like a late night commercial, right?
But the truth is we don’t get enough sleep.
Research shows that people who get the full 8 hours a night are sharper, more relaxed, less prone to illness, and actually do better at losing weight.
And if you are physically active, you need rest to restore and recover.
If you’ve been cranky and unmotivated to work out, ask yourself how many hours a day have you been sleeping? If it’s less than 8, try an experiment. Take a week and get a full 8 hours a night. (Naps count!) See how you feel.
