We've reached day 4! I'm hoping things are going to be getting a bit easier for everyone now
I thought today might be a good day to talk about sleep. There's two reasons I want to mention sleep this week:
1) If we don't get enough sleep, we tend to crave easy energy, and easy energy for me = sugar.
2) Too much sugar in our diets can interfere with our sleep quality, especially if we eat too much sugar before bedtime. Not only can it keep us awake later than necessary, but when our body is done processing it, the sugar crash can wake us up and keep us awake for a little while. It's a vicious cycle.
Guidance says we should aim for about 8 hours a night. It helps to make sure your room is fully dark and cool enough to sleep in. I'm curious if anyone is finding they're already sleeping a bit better?
P.S. feel free to ask any non-topic related questions below and/or post photos of meals to inspire us - the discussion doesn't have to stay on topic if you don't want it to
