Safe. Simple. Smart

Sleep. Fuel your Day the Night Before

Hello and welcome to another week and the start of May! 

April showers bring May Fitness 🙂

May is National Fitness Month so in honor of a fun month filled with squats, jumps, throws and a couple slams, Rockstar Fitness would like to talk about an important part of your daily fitness routine 

*Sleep and how to rest the best.

Sleep is one thing we all need and we all do to make each day the best it can be. 

Why we sleep? 

Why we actually need sleep is widely unknown, but the benefits are many! 

We ponder on the many positive effects sleep can do for us 🙂

>Helps with a diversity of Brain Functions 

  1. Learn 
  2. Memories 
  3. Make logical decisions and choices 
  4. Sleep recalibrates our emotional brain circuits to allow us to navigate; social and psychology challenges with a cool-headed composure 

How to get restful sleep? 

There are a couple fast and hard ways to get your mind ready to sleep longer and better:

>No screens 30-45 minutes before sleep 

>Dimmed lights 

>Read a book like “Why we Sleep” (information below) 

>Play with puzzle pieces 

Stretch for the Night Sky?

Allowing yourself to stretch out after a long day can make you more relaxed, less sore or tight, and wake more rested.

Lucky for the wonderful members of the Rockstar Nation…that’s you :)…I have a couple stretches to do to get into that restful mood you need. 

Please use this helpful video to make tonight’s sleep a little better!

Have a super day Rockstar Nation!
