Spring Cleaning: Post 2

As an adult you need 7-9 hours of solid, uninterrupted sleep every night. Sleep provides some pretty amazing benefits, including lower stress, improved mood, improved coordination and athletic performance, better attention and memory, and better weight control. In contrast, missing out on good sleep increases your risk for accidents, calorie intake and carb cravings. You’re also more likely to skip your workout.

To get all of your zzzzz’s:

  • Set up a consistent bedtime and wake up time and stick with it—yes, even on the weekend.
  • Create a relaxing bedtime routine—it works for kids, why wouldn’t it work for adults too?
  • Keep your bedroom quiet, dark, cool, and free from electronics.
  • Get regular exercise—it’s good to fall into bed physically exhausted.
