So.. I’m horrible at going to sleep early. Most of it has to do with my job, I usually always get out at 11pm or 12am. But I still always strive to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
Why is sleep so important ?
When you are trying to be healthy and fit and going crazy in whole foods and working out until you drop at the gym. You HAVE to have a good nights sleep every night. It’s a Big part of being healthy. Just like drinking water ..
I remember I read this in a self magazine. I don’t remember who it was (I’m pretty sure it was a Victoria Secret model ) they asked her; so what is your secret to staying radiant and healthy? She answered, “I sleep a lot and drink a lot of water “.
After I read that, I kid you not I drowned in water and woke up with so many eye bags because I slept TO MUCH. (I tend to overdue everything)
