I’ve got a BIG wake-up call for you today — about SLEEP!

Did you know that if you don’t get enough sleep, your risk for heart disease and heart attack goes up…

… no matter your age, your weight, how much you exercise, or whether you smoke?!!!


Plus, not getting enough sleep is linked with:

  • Cognitive decline & dementia
  • Depression
  • Obesity

I know I talk about sleep a lot, but the fact is…

One of the BEST things you can do for yourself — mind, body, and spirit! — is set yourself for a good night of sleep every night.

You’ll recover from your workouts better… have a lot more energy the next day… you’ll make better decisions… you’ll be more focused… and you’ll be able to perform at your very best.

And getting enough sleep can help:

  • Boost your immune system and mood,
  • Improve brain function,
  • Lower your risk of chronic diseases

Here are a few great ways to boost your sleep:

  • Get fresh air and sunshine during the day
  • Work out or squeeze in some activity early in the day
  • Make sure you go to bed early enough so you can get 7+ hours of sleep
  • Don’t drink coffee or other caffeinated drinks after lunch
  • Limit (or avoid!) alcohol
  • Don’t eat heavy foods before bed
  • Create a nighttime wind-down routine to let your body know when it’s time to go to sleep
  • Dim your screens at night or use a blue light filter
  • Use app-blocking tools to avoid late-night scrolling on your phone

And maybe most importantly, really listen to your body.

When you have a GREAT night of sleep, notice what helped you make it happen… and do more of that! 😴
