Priority change!

This mystery activity affects nearly every tissue in our bodies. It helps us cope with stress and gives us energy. 

It prevents sickness, lowers our blood pressure, affects our appetite and helps us think clearly.  It even helps our hearts stay healthy. Its restorative powers are amazing. 

Wow!  Do you want that for your body?  I do!  

Then make sleep a priority!  Getting enough sleep is one of the smartest things we can do to be healthy.

All those good benefits are waiting for us and all we have to do is go to bed and sleep.

It seems so easy, but getting to bed earlier is hard for some of us.  Before I go to bed I like to check Pinterest for a few new ideas and before I know it it’s been ½ an hour.  It is such a waste of precious sleep time and for what?

If you have kids at home sometimes the late night is your quiet time.  But don’t skimp on your sleep!  You need it to help you cope with your busy life. 

Sleep needs to be a higher priority in my life and I’m guessing yours too.  

I’m doing a short series on the importance of sleep.  Why we need more sleep and strategies to get more.  How sleep affects our appetite and stress level.

Sleep needs to be a higher priority in my life.  I want those health benefits especially the energy.

My goal is to wind down earlier in the evening.  It’s going to take some discipline, as I want to be asleep before 11, not going to bed at 11. 

Today’s little step:  Start winding down earlier in the evening.  Go to bed 15 minutes earlier.  

Every extra minute of sleep makes a difference!

Next week smart strategies to help us wind down for bed and get more sleep!
