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.
