Let’s talk goals and habits for a minute.
How many of you are night owls?
What about morning people?
What about both?
I try to do both and I can tell you, I am ready to go to bed earlier and feel more refreshed.
There are countless articles out there discussing the importance of getting enough sleep as an adult. The Mayo Clinic, as well as many other health organizations recommend 7-9 hours of sleep per night for adults.
Sleeping 7-9 hours may not be a reality for some people, however, if it’s something you are able to do…I challenge you to try this goal with me!
I am 7 months pregnant and have a lot on my “to-do” list. I always feel like it’s nice to get things accomplished late at night. The side effect of this, is a grumpy, tired mom the next day.
So I decided TODAY is a new day. Our own personal health is so important and sleep is very necessary to be healthy not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I personally notice my memory struggles greatly when I don’t get a good nights rest. I am also much more moody, and I even tend to get headaches when I don’t get a decent nights rest.
Starting tonight I will be in my bed ready to sleep by 10 pm. No reading, no social media…just going to sleep.
I will report back to you in one week on how well I handled this challenge.
I would love to have others join me and hear your reactions!
Next time I get on here I will hopefully be a more rested, happier and healthier person….
Until next time,
