Let's now throw that 1-2 punch combination to move another step towards improving sleep. In addition to proper nutrition, regular workouts each week can also be a huge benefit towards sleeping better. According to Brad Cardinal PhD, “Increasingly, the scientific evidence is encouraging as regular physical activity may serve as a non-pharmaceutical alternative to improve sleep.”
According to the National Sleep Foundation, People sleep significantly better and feel more alert during the day if they get at least 150 minutes of exercise a week, a new study concludes. (That's 5 x 9Round workouts per week!)
If you are already getting the proper amount of sleep each night, fantastic, keep up the good work. If not, no worries; let's start to put the pieces of the puzzle together in terms of nutrition and training so that we can set ourselves up for sleep success. And, let's continue to make sleep a priority, no matter how busy we are.
Sincerely, Dr. Rick Kattouf II
