Are you getting enough sleep at night? To maintain a healthy lifestyle it is recommended that you get at least 6-8 hours of sleep every night. Sleeping adequately and consistently leads to a longer life, increased productivity throughout the day, and aids in the overall healing and recovery process. Your body need to be rejuvenated, especially if you have a very busy schedule. Getting enough sleep will also ensure that you recover and get results from your fitness routine. If you are not getting enough sleep at night then you are unable to function at your optimum level. A lack of sleep, less than 6 hours at night, can have long term damaging effects on the mind and body.
Not getting enough sleep at night can cause: · Increased risk of heart attack and strokes · Weight Gain · Increased appetite during the day · Stress · Problems with focusing and paying attention · Muscle loss · Depression
