Apex Performance is more than just about working out and staying fit. Our health professionals want to help clients overcome the misinformation and lack of guidance about getting in shape. Darryl Johnson, a personal trainer, explains how poor sleep can affect your lifestyle.

You’ve probably heard about the importance and benefits of exercising. It’s our best medicine, according to us. It is, and it is. However, improving your nutrition and implementing other lifestyle changes are key to seeing results in muscle training or rehabilitation. One of these habits is getting enough sleep (and good sleep).

Lack of sleep can have a negative impact on your overall health and even hinder your fitness goals. It can, however, be improved.

What is Insufficient Sleep Doing to Your Body

The National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults sleep between 7 and 9 hours per night. Many people get less than this each night.

If your body isn’t getting enough rest, it can lead to

* More medical conditions like obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

* More belly fat This happens when there is very little physical activity (i.e. The abdominal region, i.e. the gut) becomes a deposit of the free fatty acid during sleep or low activity (i.e. the gut ).

* Excessive production of hunger-producing hormones can lead to overeating.

* Inability to recover from difficult strength training or exercise. * Stage 3 of NREM Sleep (when brain activity slows down to relax) is when the growth hormone responsible for healing muscle tissue is released.

How to Increase Sleep Quality

It takes just a few sleepless nights to understand the importance of quality and quantity of sleep. It not only gives you the energy to get through the day but is also vital for your long-term health.

These steps can help you improve your sleeping habits:

* Maintain a consistent sleep schedule. Every night, go to bed at the same time each night.

* Sleep in a dark room, quiet room. This means that there is no TV or electronics in the room, so turn off your phone!

Never, ever! Never eat before going to bed. This will not only cause significant weight gain but could also interfere with your ability to fall asleep. Reduce the amount of food and snack consumed 3 hours before you go to bed.

This is something we all know, but it can be done. Physical activity and exercise can help reduce stress and anxiety.
