Each week, I am going to pick one healthy step to focus on and share it with you on my journey to becoming a @HealthierGirl. I’ll share my progress throughout the week and summarize for you the following week to let you know how I did with my goal… successes, failures and all.
This week, I am going to focus on getting more sleep. I’ll admit it. I don’t get enough sleep. During the work week, I probably get about 6 hours of sleep per night and, last week there was even a night with only 4 (yes, that is FOUR). I seriously couldn’t function the next day and now I can feel the cold coming on … sore throat, headache. I’ve always needed a lot of sleep and I typically get very run down when I don’t get enough. This time appears to be no different!
According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night. So, with that… my healthy step for this week is to get at least 7.5 hours of sleep every night this week. On the weekends, this is easy because I can sleep in…
What healthy step are you taking this week?
