I thank you for your tips. I totally agree with what you say. I used to be a person who liked staying up late and have some me time by reading or watching tv. Now I have some me time by going to bed by 10 so I can have my 8 hours of sleep. I never knew I really needed it.
Completely agree. I also diffuse a mixture of essential oils about 1/2 hour before i get in bed. I find the soft sent relaxes me. I also use my time right before bed to meditate.
I have a fitbit that I wear at night. What I have found in the past month was that I do not wake up as often in the night. I have been getting a better and more restorative sleep. I truly believe it has helped me gain energy during the day.
Sleep and relaxation during a 24hr period is just as important as what you eat. If you do not get proper sleep your body and mind do not rejuvenate and your food does not digest as well. Relaxation especially if you life a hectic stressful life is key to loosing belly fat. Try deep breathing in a quiet serine place while you do your Spark meditation or other meditations. Also right before you go to bed do progressive muscle relaxation so that you fall asleep better and in a relaxed state. Never put a TV in your bedroom, go to be at the same time every night, establish a routine. These are my tips for today! hope they help!
