“You are what you eat.” Many of us have heard this motivational one-liner before as an attempt to help us eat healthier. Or, how about this one, “Your body is a temple, littering is strictly prohibited.” The issue with both of these is that, they don’t help me when my reward center hormones are surging when a warm cinnamon roll is sitting right in front of me when I haven’t eaten in eight hours. And if my body was really a temple, wouldn’t I want a temple dedicated to myself to be filled with my favorite things? I think we need a new “catchy, healthy eating slogan” to help ourselves out.

New Year’s Resolutions are the worst. Primarily, we come up with things that are impossible to sustain. For example, when we can’t maintain our goal of waking up at 4:00 am to get to the insanity boot camp class at 5:00 am every morning, we feel like a failure, and it’s only January 10th.
Here is the issue. Most of us have resolutions regarding health and fitness. Making changes to improve our health is wonderful! What I am going to discuss today, is that many of these goals fail, because to make time for our new fitness or health plan, we deduct time from our sleep schedule. Sleep is imperative for both your physical and mental health, and that is what we are going to discuss today. So, Happy New Year! Go back to bed.
