Routinely getting less than six or seven hours sleep demolishes your immune system, disrupts sugar levels and sets you on a path of cardiovascular disease.
sleep regulates your appetite, and it is the single most effective thing we can do to reset our brain and body health each day.
In my experience, I found myself eating more and feeling less satisfied with food when I don’t get enough sleep and am very tired.
Sleep experts recommend getting up and going to bed at the same time every day. I know what you’re thinking, it is easier said than done. Adhering to a strict sleep schedule sounds unrealistic if not mostly impossible for many. Some will say I have different commitments. Others may work different shift times so my plan is to set my alarm for when I need to go to bed, and I’m wearing an activity tracker so my sleep patterns will be automatically tracked.
So that is my plan for forming new habits for the next four weeks. If you are thinking of taking on any new habits or goals over the next few weeks I would love to know.
