Sleep Is Under-rated…

Did you know that there is a direct correlation between sleep & obesity?

The correlation is that most & it can be argued that all obese people have some sort of sleep disorder!

Vice versa is also true, if you start to suffer with sleep issues you will notice your body-fat will begin to climb.

When you suffer with sleep problems your body will lay down more fat because it is stressed.

If your sleep is disrupted, broken, restless, or at irregular times & generally doesn’t leave you feeling rested then you are heading for major problems.

Sleep is totally under-rated!

I know from personal experience that when I sleep properly it is much easier to perform well & lower my body-fat.

What is sleeping properly I hear you ask?

 

Perfect Timing…

If you get over 7 hours sleep a night does it matter what time you go to sleep?

My answer to that is most certainly yes. Within my training courses we cover the importance of sleep & how to perfect your sleep patterns.

For now what you need to know is this – The closer you follow the cycle of the sun & moon the healthier you will be.

 

What the hell does that mean?

It means that when the sun goes down you should go to bed & when the sun rises you should be rising.

If it starts getting light around 6.30am & you should be getting at least 7 hours sleep a night then you know you should be sound asleep by 11.30pm.

Bare in mind this is the minimum requirement.

You may be someone who needs more than 7 hours a night to be at your best?

 

How Long Do You Last…

Ever noticed that when you have a bad nights sleep that you can’t physically perform as well the next day?

If you are in the gym or participating in a sporting event you’ll notice you wont be able to last as long as you’d hoped.

How about when you have 2 or 3 bad nights! The problem gets worse doesn’t it!

You’ll find it hard to concentrate. Which also indicates that improper sleep affects your brain.

In fact a recent study from the Journal Science reported that sleep drives metabolic clearance from the brain.

Which suggests that your brain detoxifies while you are sleeping.

So, the better you sleep the better you will perform. If you have a physically or mentally demanding day you know that you should get an early night in order to give yourself a chance.

Well the same principle applies on a day-to-day basis. Sleep well – perform well.

 

How Long Should It Be…

Again I explain within my training courses the science behind the perfect amount of time to be asleep for.

For now, what you need to know is that studies suggest 7-9 hours of sleep every night is the correct amount of sleep to recovery optimally.

From that point you need to trial & error different sleep durations to figure out which is right for you.

Some people need less than others. Find out what your perfect sleep duration is & stick to it.

How To Figure It Out?

Notice how long you sleep for & how you feel when you wake up. Have a journal beside your bed & each morning when you wake draw a face on the page relating to how you feel.

Happy face for high-energy – Straight face for neither high nor low energy – Sad face for low energy.

Do this for 4 days in a row. Now adjust your sleep time by at least 1 hour – more or less, you choose. Keep this sleep duration for 4 days.

Compare your results about how you felt each morning. The more rested, alert & alive you felt with 1 of the sleep times is your preferred duration.

Refine this further by adjusting half hour either way. Once you’ve tested half an hour extra, try the opposite.

What you’ll end up with is a length of time that you know restores your energy & provides you with the best support for your next day.

 

Different Quality…

This area can be taken in to a lot of detail.

What I want you to take away is that your bedroom should be somewhat like a cave!

Dark, Silent & Zero Electrical devices.

Make sure it is pitch black (get blackout blinds)

Make sure sound cannot disturb the depth of your sleep (wear earplugs).

Unplug all electrical devices & keep your phone out of the bedroom!

Do all of these things & notice how much better you sleep & how much better you perform.

Over time you will also notice how much healthier you become & how it’s easier to lower your body-fat!

 

Conclusion

Proper sleep is essential if you want to be at your best.

There are specific times that you should be sleeping to bring about a healthier you.

There are specific conditions that promote fully rewarding sleep.

Manage your sleep patterns to create a solid foundation of health & give yourself the best chance of success in every area of your life.
