But sleep sure does the body good (side note I do know that milk does the body good...however I despise it. I get my calcium via almond/cashew milk and cheese. But that is a story for another day). As I wrote on Sunday, I wanted to set a goal to sleep more. Well people...I am on day THREE of being in bed before 10 PM. Holla! And no joke, it has made the biggest difference. So yeah, I still probably don't fall asleep until 10. And yeah I'm still waking up at 4:45 AM, but getting close to 7 hours of sleep a night (opposed to 5-6) has totally changed my attitude. I have woken up before my alarm twice (which is ridiculous because who has a natural alarm clock of 4:42 AM?!), and it feels so good. And of course there is research to support why I feel so much better. The sleep foundation suggests that people between 18-64 need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. While I wish I could sleep 9 hours, knowing that I am getting closer to the 7 is a start! Check out the suggested hours of sleep per night based on age below!
