Fitness Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!!! Yes, I'm a total slacker and have been blogging once a week....... Better late than never. Anywho, for my Fitness Tuesday I want to talk about something that we all must do: sleep. For the past few months, I have been researching and looking into sleep. This means what to do or not do before bed, lighting, temperature of the room, and so on.  I also have been listening to podcast that give some great information about sleep. One piece of information that I found interesting is that the 7-9 hrs that is suggested for adults is not necessary for all.  Here are a few articles that I found pretty helpful about the topic:

 And if you are wondering how I look when I'm going to be?  The picture below I think is pretty accurate:

I hate being cold so I am usually wrapped up in a blanket or my snuggie looking like a human burrito. Plus, due to my underactive thyroid, I am cold more than your average person. Research has suggested that we should sleep in a cooler temperature room. The amount of sleep we all receive affects all of our bodies are different. The older you get, the less sleep you need (hence why children need more sleep). It is interesting reading all the information out  because there is no right or wrong answer with sleep. We all have to do what is best for our bodies, not a one size fit all program. On a future Fitness Tuesday I will share some tips on how to get better sleep.

Until next time, Peace & Blessings all & have a great Tuesday!!!
