🙋 Hands up who sleep well?
🙌 Picture this, in a room of 100, only 20 would raise their hand. Why do we care? Because sleep is the foundation of health. Lack of sleep has been shown to increase blood sugar levels and contribute to greater sugar cravings the following day. That is just one in which sleep affects our mood, energy, and food choices throughout the day.
😴 Poor sleep- makes your hunger hormone, ghrelin around 15% more hungry, and your satiation hormone, leptin around 15% less effective. That’s a 30% deviation from your true hunger!
😓 We can’t eat well and sleep badly and feel good long-term. That is why sleep is always part of the conversation with clients.
🤔 How do you sleep better tonight, honestly it happens with awareness, wanting to change, and slowly improving your bedtime habits step by step? Here are some quick tips to get you started:
1️⃣ Try going to bed at the same time every night.
2️⃣ Wind down period before bed- No phones or screens 1 hour before bed (this habit alone is one that we work closely on with clients- you’re not alone we are a glued to our phones but we don’t have to be)
3️⃣ Don’t exercise too close to bed- this can power up the nervous system. A warm drink can help settle the nervous system and help you unwind.
