We’re mellowing out on this #wellnesswednesday – brought to you by Coach Brie!
This week we’re focusing on the importance of #sleep!
Sleep is indeed a crucial aspect of overall health and well-being. While physical exercise, such as weightlifting, can have numerous benefits, the quality and duration of sleep should not be underestimated. Adequate sleep plays a vital role in supporting longevity and optimal functioning of the body and mind.
Research has consistently shown that consistently getting 7-9 hours of sleep per night is associated with numerous health benefits. Here are some ways in which quality sleep contributes to longevity:
– Cellular repair and regeneration
– Cognitive function and memory
– Immune system support
– Cardiovascular health
– Mental and emotional well-being
While physical exercise, including weightlifting, has its own benefits, it’s important to recognize that sleep and exercise are not mutually exclusive. Engaging in regular exercise can actually improve sleep quality, and a healthy sleep routine can enhance exercise performance and recovery.
