Miss Nichole with Fit Friday!!
Last week I told you we would be breaking down the importance of all four components of our physical health throughout the next few weeks. All four of these are pretty basic and non-surprising, and all important. This week we start with sleep.
We all know we need it, yet it is often pushed to the wayside in favor of a favorite Netflix series, pressing matters at work, a little one’s science experiment, a fun night out, etc. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying sleep must win out all the time or that there isn’t a place for any of that. What I am saying is that we can’t let the rest of life consistently push sleep to the wayside. You need sleep!
How often are you getting your 7-8 hours of recommended sleep? I would say most nights I am in bed for around that long… unfortunately I have a toddler that still doesn’t sleep through the night, so I am getting up most nights at least once with her. Thankfully, she is getting up less and less and I have faith that her wake ups will be a thing of the past soon. I can’t wait for that day, I know my body needs sleep. Sleep is when the body and mind repair itself. Those sleeping hours allow my body, mind, and heart to get ready for what lies ahead.
Make it a goal to get your sleep most nights. Life is to be lived, so enjoy some nights out with your friends, take time after the kids go to bed to enjoy some time with your spouse, and take over the t.v. every once in a while, just don’t make it a more-often-than-not thing.
