So I love looking back at the end of the week and seeing my sleep patterns.
When I feel my top of the game, best, I'm rested!
I use a Garmin to track all my phone alerts, movements, workouts and SLEEP!! In order to be the best you your body needs recovery time:
Time off your feet 👣
Time out of your head🧠
Time in the dark🖤
Time in a warm or cool environment to relax❤💙💚 Your brian is a muscle💪 and if you dont relax it it will 'cramp up' and make life miserable.
I have a routine for wake 🤗 and sleep😴; 💬Hear this.... that took me about 2 weeks to decide I wanted to work on sleep and love my brain & body more!
I am up at 5am (sometimes 430am)
I eat my prepped breakfast....then workout, pack my lunch, shower and head to a job that is demanding!
🐶🐕🐩On my feet 8 to 10 hrs 🐱🐈 then I come home, check on my hens🐔🐥, check in on my hubby🙇♂️, eat dinner and then Personal Development.
PD right now is Transform 20 log book and my Bible Study📖 - God of Covenant study of Genesis 12 to 50! 📺TV OFF 30 min before bed time of 9 to 930pm.
I take a Melatonin & L-theanine supplement that helps me just turn the brain off at the same time TV goes off - 📲Phone also goes on SILENT & on the charger ( NOT IN MY BEDROOM). I wake and do it all again - some days it is easy and some days it it hard, life happens !!
I DONT BEAT MYSELF UP, I LET IT GO AND RESET FOR THE NEXT DAY
SLEEP IS IMPORTANT - DO NOT ABUSE IT!
I used to be able to sleep hours on end because I didn't fuel my body properly, I did not eat well and gave my body foods it struggled to process, I used sleep as an mechanism to avoid others, to keep myself in a depressed state and that just made my mind and body a unhappy item.
I still struggle with proper food for fuel, for pushing my self to stick to a routine, to not abuse sleep when I'm stressed.
No one is perfect people......NO ONE!!
