Nothing beats a good night’s sleep!
I’ve mentioned a bunch of times on this blog the importance of drinking water, healthy eating, and physical activity for health. But you can’t argue with the research that claims that if we don’t sleep enough hours at night or have low quality sleep, our body and soul won’t function in an ideal way.
Yes, even if we’d drink all the green juices in the world 😉
This may explain that while health trends are constantly changing, good sleep maintains its position as one of the most important things for our health.
Still, many of us are willing to give up on good sleep. And even when we finally find the time to sleep, it’s often not too satisfying or ideal…
I admit, my sleeping patterns in the last year have not really been a source of pride…
Because I work from home I allowed myself to work until the wee hours of the night, I didn’t give up on Netflix, and I often treated myself to endless hours of pinterest and instagram in bed, with my eyes glued to my iPhone.
This was my sleeping pattern for a very long time…and its influence was very impactful.
Last month I decided that I need to make a gradual change in order to improve the quality of my sleep. True, I am still no “sleep champion” and there is still a lot of room to improve, but I already feel a positive influence of the good habits that I succeeded in taking on.
I decided to write this post as a reminder for you, and as a personal reminder as well. I hope it will affect you and will encourage you to set aside a bit of time to do what you need in order to improve the quality of your life.
