I went to bed around midnight last night and got up at about 8:30 am. It was blissful! I remember the days when my girls were up at the crack of dawn or earlier (my oldest by 4:40/5 am on a weekend!!) and my husband and I would be exhausted by noon. So now I get how lucky we are to be back on our schedule (sorta, we do have dogs 🐕🐶🙄). I’m a 7-8 hours/night kinda gal. When I make day trips to Cambridge for work, my colleagues all meet up at the cafe car and open up theirs computers and email and chat. I tell them I’ll see them in Cambridge, grab a comfy seat and nap as much as I can. It is 5 am after all!!!! I’m lucky I don’t suffer from insomnia except occasionally when I’m stressed. Working out certainly helps. .
✨I believe getting enough sleep has a bigger impact on our life than we realize✨. It affects our energy, our mood, our stamina, our creativity, our ability to keep our emotions in check, our health....
✨I definitely sleep well when I eat well. I sleep like crap when I eat like crap. .
✨I sleep AMAZING when I’m working out regularly✨
✨and if I had a productive day, and feel good about the person I showed up as to my friends, colleagues, and family, I sleep well.✨
✨The ability to do all those things: eat well, workout, perform, parent, be a good colleague and friend... all require good sleep. See how it all works together!? .
If you’re off the wagon it all falls apart. If you’re on, it builds positive momentum in your life. .
Hope everyone gets a good night sleep tonight!! Sleep 😴 #getenoughsleep #getenoughrest #healthylifestyle #sundayvibes #sundaymornings #fitsciencemom
