When do you start your day?

I have a little mindset experiment for you today that just might blow your mind. What if instead of thinking of your day starting when you WAKE UP in the morning… You flipped it so that your day begins when you go to bed at night?

Say what? 

Hang with me for a sec… because even though this might sound weird, it’s worth trying. That’s because sleep is SO IMPORTANT it deserves to be a priority (e.g., one of the first things you do) vs. an afterthought (the last thing you do). Starting your day with a solid 7-8 hours of quality sleep lays the foundation for not only a great day, but for deep health & wellness.

Sleep is basically nutrition for your brain.

If you don’t get enough of it, it can mess with your stress hormones, your hunger hormones, and even the hormones that help your body turn food into energy.

And there’s more…Being sleep-deprived can interfere with your decision-making skills because it dulls your brain’s frontal lobe. This affects your ability to be focused, sharp, and make great decisions.

And that’s not even getting into alllll the other things that happen when you’re sleeping (like removing waste from your brain, cell repair, and more).

When you prioritize your sleep, you are prioritizing feeling GREAT. These are the kinds of “little things” (that are actually BIG things!) that we work on in Fitness Lifestyle

All these things add up to big results!
