KEEPIN’ IT FIERCE!
I have NINE more days to post 9 more ways that I’m continuing my quest to live my FIERCEST LIFE. I’ve been telling you that I plan on being 105 years old, so I’ve still got 70 years to go! I have ELEVEN “things” that I’m adding (or shall I say putting back in) to my daily life that, I feel, make ME a better person. I’m sharing one with YOU each day. Today is # 3. (Check out DAY 1 & DAY 2 for other game changers.)
#3: I AM GETTIN’ WAY MORE ZZZZZs.
- HEALTH: You need good quality sleep for your bod to function properly.I’ve talked about this before. There are two hormones that are key in proper function of a healthy bod are ghrelin and leptin. Ghrelin is the hormone that tells your body when to eat, and leptin is the hormone that tells you to stop eating. WHY SLEEP DEPRIVATION SUCKS: When you are sleep-deprived, you have more ghrelin (picture Chris Farley, “Don’t touch me I’m Starving!)! and when you are sleep deprived, you have less leptin (aka your stop button, so you just keep on eating). Less sleep equals more ghrelin plus less leptin equals weight gain, double, equals rule #3: I’m goin’ to bed early!
- GETTIN’ SMART: I wake up at 5AM each day and don’t get to bet until much before 11:30PM. I have F.O.M.O. or fear of missing out. I like to be up and awake, I was always the last one to fall asleep at slumber parties, but I know I need to give my bod time to rest. I know it’s the right thing to do.
- NUFF SAID: Do I really need more reasons? I’m doin’ it!
PPS – I know I’ve told you for the past couple of days but I REALLY DO LOVE my birthday! I really think that I’m going to declare EVERY day my special day from now on! I AM FIERCE… WE ARE FIERCE!
