Now everyone who knows me will say that I'm no night owl. I'm always the first one to call it a night. But lately, I've been embracing my fuddy-duddy ways to the fullest. In the past few weeks, I've been going to bed with the kids at 9:30. Amazing things have started to happen. First of all, I recover from workouts faster, my mood is great, and I don't find myself bored and looking for ice cream late at night. The best part about it is that my body has harmonized with the day. I wake up slowly as the light creeps into the room at dawn. No blaring alarm necessary. It is so peaceful and really sets the tone for the whole day. I love it.
So get some extra sleep this week and see what it can do for you. It's the best anti-stress tool out there!
