Sleep, Shorty, Sleep

Sleep can either enhance or reduce your quality your #little life!!

Sleep is essential for FAT LOSS and MUSCLE BUILDING as well as energy, hormone regulation, healthy digestion, immunity, recovery, and more!

What happens when you have bad sleep?

  • out of whack hormones (which contributes to everything below)
  • Bad digestion (bloating, constipation)
  • Inability to fully recover from training (leads to overtraining)
  • Increased risk of getting sick
  • Fat gain and Muscle loss
  • Increased insulin resistance

How to get good sleep:

  • Aim for 7-8 hours
  • reduce blue light & electronics at least an hour before bed (adjust settings on your phone and try blue light blocking glasses.
  • Reduce caffeine throughout the day and limit after a certain time ( like no caffeine after 3pm)
  • Supplements like zinc, magnesium, melatonin and CBD. Do your research before adding these!
  • Adjust your thermostat so that you sleep in a cool environment
  • Black out curtains and turn off all sources of light (no tv! no night lights!)
  • Turn of the wifi. This will prevent you from staying up too late scrolling Instagram!
