January Challenge Chiggity Check Yo Self



Challenge one is to be aware of how many hours you sleep on average per night.
Not when you lay in the bed... but how many hours after you turn off everything and close your eyes until you open them to begin your day.
For health, restoration, and optimal living you should receive no less than 6 hours of sleep per night.

So this first week we're going to track how many hours you sleep.
Yes, that is it. The entire challenge for week one.

Working out and eating healthy are imperative to being healthy. Before we begin moving more, stretching and eating even healthier than we do today, let's make a conscious effort to sleep at least seven hours a night four days in week Two. Yes, that is the entire challenge for week two. 
If you're already sleeping at least seven hours through the night, you're ahead of the game.

Building positive habits is a journey. Healthy living is journey. This week we're going to sleep for a minimum of seven hours for at least four days, and stop eating three hours before we go to sleep. 
The importance of healthy sleeping habits will help with not only weight loss but cognitive reasoning, overall mood, and productivity. 

This is our last week building new healthy sleeping habits. If you haven't completed four nights of sleeping at least seven hours, this is it. Give yourself time and space to create a healthy sleeping environment. Studies show using electronic devices such as tablets, computers, laptops, and smartphones keep your brain too active to enter into restful sleep. Plan to turn off these devices at least thirty minutes if possible an hour before you plan to go to sleep. 
If reading is part of your bedtime routine, consider using an e-ink ebook reader or print options. 
Finish this month strong by sleeping seven hours a night for no less than 4 nights this week, and no food for three hours before you go to bed each night. 
Next month we tackle turning on your metabolism each day aka 
BREAKFAST!

Here's to healthy living. Healthy is the new HAUTE!
