Tip #17 | Get good sleep | 20 days, 20 ways to get fit for spring

Miguel and Jess sleepingIt’s pretty hard to leap into action when you’re not well rested. Not to mention your metabolism shifts to sloth mode, making it virtually impossible to burn fat. A lack of sleep dulls your brain’s decision-making ability, and, well, you know how this story goes…

Aim for 7-9 hours per night. Keep your room cool and dark, have a bedtime routine that includes no phone or computer before bed (literally you right now) and try using a sleep tracker like SleepBot to help you gauge your shuteye.

I love this simple breathing exercise to help halt my endless thought patterns: Breathe in a full deep breath for 4 counts, hold for 7, and exhale for 8. Repeat four times. You’ll be blissed out and slipping into delicious sleep in no time.
