Today’s Get Fit Tip – How to Get Through The Day After A Bad Nights Sleep!
The feeling that you just didn’t quite get enough sleep is never a good one! Sleep is when your body works on recovery, while your brain works on storing memories and processing thoughts. Here are 4 tips to help you get through the next day when you’re feeling a little sluggish.
#1 Drink Lots of Water – Instead of jetting straight to the coffee, fill up a huge cup of water or two and drink that first. Bad sleep leads to dehydration, which may leave you feeling more tired.
#2 Have Breakfast – Not only will this help wake you up, a good meal of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats can help improve your memory and help you focus. Put off coffee until later in the morning.
#3 Walk Around – Luckily, at the dealership you’re probably already going to spend time on your feet, but if it’s a day where you’re sitting at a desk doing paperwork, make an effort to take walking breaks every hour or so to keep the blood flowing.
#4 Get Some Sunlight – Natural light can slow the production of melatonin, melatonin is what signals us to go to sleep, so sunshine and fresh air will do wonders for waking you up.
Getting a goods night sleep should always be a priority, but it happens to the best of us where there are some night when you just don’t get enough, and next time that happens to you, give these tips a try!
And that’s the Get Fit Tip of The Day! Thanks for watching!
