Do you get enough sleep? How about water?

Water and Sleep are two super important and most commonly neglected aspects of improving health, body composition and performance.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did you know 60% of your body is water?
Crazy when you think of it like that.
Puts it into perspective a bit… maybes it’s more important than you realized.

Studies show lack of water and dehydration can cause mental and muscular fatigue, slower metabolism, headaches, mood swings, irritability, anxiety, sleep disruption, and more…

  •  Water Helps to Maximize Physical Performance
  • Hydration Has a Major Effect on Energy Levels and Brain Function
  • Drinking Water May Help to Prevent and Treat Headaches
  • Drinking More Water May Help Relieve Constipation
  • Drinking Water May Help Treat Kidney Stones
  • Drinking More Water Can Help With Weight Loss

 

We’re more than half water.
The world is more than half water.
More than half of our bodily functions are highly impacted by water…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤔 Maybe we should drink more water…? 💦
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You don’t need a gallon jug with you at all times but I highly suggest you at least start each and every day with a large glass of room temp water.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you can, sip water every hour throughout the day (set an hourly reminder, easy hack).
Because the truth is, just like sleep, it’s an easy thing to implement that can improve your results pretty dramatically.

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life.

Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.

The way you feel while you’re awake depends in part on what happens while you’re sleeping.

During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development.  Ongoing sleep deficiency can raise your risk for some chronic health problems. It also can affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others.

Get some sleep!!!

  • Not getting enough sleep is linked to weight gain.
  • Getting the right amount of sleep improves your hormones
  • Good sleep improves your immune system.
  • Sleep helps to improve learning skills
  • Sleep lowers the risk of developing depression
  • People who get more sleep naturally eat less
  • Sleep improves athletic performance
