About a month ago I posted about the importance of sleep and the numerous benefits to not just health but also body composition.
Since then, I have been experimenting on test subject number 1: MYSELF! Determined to see what I experience with more sleep I started to set my alarm for no less than 7 hours per night. What I discovered was shocking! For the first few nights, nothing really different, other than convincing myself to do it. But on the 4th night, I actually woke up before my alarm. It didnt just stop there, for the mornings after I awoke well rested, prior to my alarm! The other thing was I was more mentally alert, had more ideas and didnt fade as the day went on. Sure, I didnt go immediately to sleep when my head hit the pillow, but rather I could enjoy the moment of relaxation as I slowly drifted into sleep. SO HERE IS MY CHALLENGE TO YOU: This week, set your alarm for 7 hours of sleep (minimum). You might need to adjust some of your activities but you will find you can do more with less. Let us know and please share with the group how it goes for you???
