It’s summer—that amazing time of year when the days are long and simple pleasures abound. Rather than slacking off, keep your healthy eating and exercise habits simple, yet effective this summer.
First off, make sure you get your nightly dose of sleep. It is tempting to stay up with the sun, but not getting enough sleep can have a negative impact on your health. A sleep deprived brain doesn’t function properly, affecting your cognitive abilities, memory and emotional state. It puts you at greater risk for developing chronic diseases and weight gain. Keep a regular bedtime and wake up time–you’ll feel better and that’s the start of a good day.
