Today’s 1% Change: Get More Better Sleep

May 18, 2017

 

Yes I know that’s not proper English.

 

But getting enough good quality sleep is critical your overall health and achieving your goals. Often I hear people saying they’re working out a lot and eating well and can’t seem to lose weight, or aren’t achieving their fitness goals.

 

The problem could be not enough sleep or not sleeping soundly. Lack of sleep directly affects thyroid hormones, stress hormones and appetite regulating hormones.You don’t want to be messing with your hormones.

 

Are you sleepy or have trouble focusing in the afternoon?

Do you have trouble waking up and getting going in the morning? Hitting that snooze button several times before getting up?

 

Try getting more sleep!

 

Some people brag about getting less sleep. I've heard "I do fine on 6 hours of sleep." Or, "I can get by on 4 or 5 hours of sleep." I'd say you'll do a lot better if you get 7 or 8 hours of sleep.

 

Here are a few things that you can do to improve your sleep quality:

  • No caffeine after noon or so

  • Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day.

  • Make your bedroom very dark. That means dark curtains, and no lights from clocks or electronics or night lights.

  • Stop watching TV and using electronics an hour or more before you go to bed. Sunlight contains a lot of blue light. Those screens on your electronics emit blue light and tell your brain (and hormones) that it’s still daytime and that impacts your ability to fall asleep as well as affecting the quality of your sleep.
