Hey there my Flawsome Friend,
Hope all is well with you?
Did you enjoy last week’s post about Water?
As I said last week, each week for the next few weeks we will be talking Top Tips to a Healthier Lifestyle.
Living a healthy lifestyle is not about strict diet limitations, trying to be unrealistically thin or depriving yourself of the foods you love. For me, it’s all about feeling great, having more energy, improving my outlook on life and stabilising my mood.
There is some very overwhelming and conflicting diet advice out there, don’t be discouraged, you’re not alone.
Let me help you cut thought all this confusion and learn how to create a healthier lifestyle that is good for mind and body.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain weight, build muscle, become fitter, feel better, feel stronger, have more energy, check out my tips each week, over the next few weeks, to help achieve a healthier improved you.
Today we are going to talk about Sleep.
Ever heard that saying, ‘You snooze, you lose’, well it couldn’t be more accurate when it comes to shedding those unwanted extra pounds. Depriving your body of sleep can speed up aging and deter your weight loss efforts. The brain craves carbs when your tired, so you could unknowingly sabotage even best laid plans. Aim for a good 6-8 hours (minimum) every night, to allow your body to restore and to protect vital organs.
All human organs need rest for their normal functions. The human body is like a machine and if this machine is over worked it may lose its balance. Over work, both physical and mental may cause loss of health and much disorder. Continuous work and absence of rest is bad for a healthy body. There is no specific time for taking rest but rest as much as your body feels fresh and comfortable is recommended. It’s also recommended for women, especially pregnant women to take as much rest as possible because they need more rest.
