Why Sleep is Actually Just as Important as Exercise
Sleep is just as (if not MORE) important as exercise when it comes to your health and fitness goals and overall wellness.
Sleep allows your body time to rest and rejuvenate. It also provides the opportunity for your muscles to recover from exercise and grow stronger.
Additionally, the amount of sleep that you get each night directly impacts your level of energy. More energy = more motivation and stamina for your workout.
If you are struggling to get the results that you want from your diet and exercise, you may need to take a closer look at your sleep and recovery.
An easy trick to boost your sleep? Start prepping for it first thing in the morning by getting some sunlight!
Research shows that bright lights stimulate the part of the brain that regulates your circadian rhythms. Your circadian rhythm dictates your sleep cycle.
Increasing your exposure to light during the day will help to synchronise your internal clock, which will boost your mood and alertness during the day and help you to sleep better at night.
Do you wake up and go to sleep at the same time each day?
