As incredible as it can feel to challenge ourselves and get that heart rate up- it is important to realize Sleep is a critical component in recovery. Get those 💤😊
It’s helpful to view sleep as a “reset”- it is commonly understood in three stages:
2- Deep (slow-wave)
3- Rapid Eye Movement (REM)
About every 90 minutes we cycle through these stages. Slow-wave sleep gives us our energy restoration. There you have it- power in waves……..
If you need tips on a best sleep routine- here are a few:
1- Have a black out room- minimize all light.
2- Park your electronic devices in another room.
3- Sleep naked
4- Try going to bed the same time every night.
5- Avoid Caffeine at nighttime.
6- Avoid Alcohol 3 hours before bed.
7. Exercise morning rather than late night.
8. Get a comfortable bed:-)
Avoid at all cost sleep deprivation! Your next day will find you bright eyed and bushy tailed!
