Your TV Is Making You Fat – 9 Activities You Can Do Instead Of Watching TV

Over the last couple of weeks I have told you that sleep is vitally important, and just as a reminder those sleeping around 6 hours a night are more likely to be obese or overweight than those getting a solid 9 hours a night.

Tips On How To Get Better Sleep: Part 1: Your Phone Is Stopping You Sleeping

One of the things I have been talking with clients about recently is making sure they are getting enough sleep, and good quality sleep.

 

But  what do I mean by getting better sleep? What is enough sleep and what do I mean by good quality sleep?

 

For everyone sleep is absolutely vital. It is the time we recover and rejuvenate. If you are on any health, fitness, or weight loss journey right now, then if you are not getting enough sleep, it could be hampering your results.

 

You don’t get the health benefits in the gym, you get them when you recover, when you are sleeping.

 

Good quality sleep, better sleep, is the deep sleep, this is the time that the body goes into all out recovery mode. The more deep sleep you get, the more recovering your body does.

 

I started writing this post, and it began to turn into a huge post, so I decided to break it down into smaller parts, and give you just 1 or 2 things to work on each week.

 

This week…….
