[BYWG BLOG] Did You Know Sleep is just as important as exercise?

When most people venture on a health and fitness journey, they assume that they need to really ramp up their exercise and  perfect their nutrition habits. 

 

Which are VERY important. But there is always more to the puzzle. 🙂

When people are struggling to get the results that they want, they need to take a close look at their sleep and recovery!

 

Sleep is a vital indicator of overall health and well-being. We spend up to one-third of our lives asleep! 

 

Getting more sleep is probably the single best change you can make to get yourself closer to your goals. 

 

One of the best things you can do to ensure a good night sleep is to start prepping for it first thing in the morning by getting some sunlight. 

 

Research shows that bright lights stimulate the part of the brain that regulates your circadian rhythms. 

 

Increasing your exposure to light during the day will help to synchronize your internal clock, which will boost your mood and alertness during the day and help you to sleep better at night.
