There are some things we had been doing that also hindered our sleep when we finally did stumble up to bed. I am totally guilty of a few of these but making a conscious effort to change those habits. Not only do they effect my normal day to day activities but also greatly effect my workouts, the food choices I make, how I interact with people and how I interact with myself.
I read a study the other day that just one day of bad sleep can cause you to show signs of depression. Just one day and everything is out of whack! So imagine what days, weeks or months of bad or not enough sleep will do to your mental and physical health.
There are many important reasons to get enough sleep every night; not only does sleep help keep you slim, but it also helps reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. If you can't get enough healthy shut-eye every night, one of these habits could be the culprit.
