I use to not make sleep a priority. Around the time I made all these changes in my life, I dedicated myself to increasing my average sleep amount. I use to get about 6 hours of sleep. I can’t believe how I was able to function with all the drinking and unhealthy life I was living. The truth is even when I was giving it my all in a day my body was never 100%. I was never able to reach my full potential during the day.
Now, of course, life gets in the way and I don’t get 8 hours of sleep a night like I should. But, I can say I’m averaging about 7.5 hours of sleep now. The way I feel in the morning is like night and day. You have to make it important. During the week I get up at 5:30 to start my day. So that means I need to have a goal of being asleep by 9:30. That is very early for me. But, I believe all these changes and the goals I have in place depend on me getting a good night sleep. I need to be at my best to continue my journey of developing my new lifestyle.
