If your eating and exercise are on point, but you still don’t feel or look the way you want, poor sleep may be to blame. Here’s how to tap into the power of sleep and make rest a daily priority.
Struggling with your weight? Feeling bummed out? Sluggish during workouts? Or just sluggish in general? These are common complaints from new Precision Nutrition Coaching clients. And poor diet isn’t always to blame.
Everything from lucid thinking, to good decision making, to proper digestion, to high performance is heavily dependent on getting good quality sleep.
Unfortunately, more than a third of adults get fewer than 7 hours of sleep each night, the minimum needed to keep your risk of health problems in check.
And that’s not counting the millions of folks who likely over-estimate how much sleep they’re getting, or whose sleep quality is poor because of other, seemingly unrelated lifestyle factors.
In this infographic, we unpack early indicators that you’re not getting enough rest. Then we share exactly how to prep for the best night sleep, starting with when you wake up.
Download the infographic for your tablet, or to print out, and keep it as a handy reminder to prioritize high-quality sleep every day.
(Note to fitness pros: This is also a great resource to share with your clients).
There you have it: Why sleep is so important, how to tell if you’re not getting enough, and how to engineer the perfect day for a great night’s rest.
Print out or save the infographic as a reminder to up your sleep game. And please share with a friend (or client) who might benefit from it.
Learn more healthy lifestyle strategies.
After reading this infographic, you might be wondering what other lifestyle habits affect your diet, weight, mood, and general wellbeing — and how you can tweak your routine to finally reach your health goals.
Women and men in our Precision Nutrition Coaching programs learn all about these. Even more, they get the support and guidance they need to develop practical, effective nutrition and lifestyle habits that will stick with them for the rest of their lives.
Coming Wednesday, April 5th.
If you’re a health and fitness pro and would like to learn more about becoming an elite, world-class nutrition and lifestyle coach, check out our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program; it kicks off soon.
Important: Since we only take a limited number of students each time we offer the program, and it sells out every time, the best strategy is to add your name to our free presale list.
Getting on the list gives you the chance to sign up for the certification 24 hours before everyone else. Even better, you save big on the cost of the program.
[Of course, if you’re already a student or graduate of the Level 1 Certification, check out our Level 2 Certification, an exclusive Master Class for elite trainers looking to perfect their nutrition knowledge and coaching techniques].
