Latest Fitness/Lifestyle Effort...



I’m an insomniac. I’ve been one since my time in the military. Oddly enough, it’s never had a huge impact on my life, other than making me grumpy and fatigued from time to time. Regardless, it’s never prevented me from filling the vast majority of my employee or familial obligations. And every now and again, I crash hard, but those times are few and far between. A few weeks ago a buddy turned me on to an article that explained the pitfalls of not getting enough good sleep throughout your life, including depression, obesity, blood sugar problems, heart disease and even cancer and Alzheimer’s. Being that I already experience a couple of these issues, I knew the information was real as soon as I read it. 

Shortly thereafter another buddy bought a sleep watch and started showing me how it measures and shows the breakdown of your sleep each night, including deep sleep, light sleep and awake sleep. After a week, I decided to buy one for myself to track my sleep. What I’ve learned over the course of my life is that anything I am able to measure, I’m able to improve, so I’m now sharing my sleep report with my two friends every morning as we all try to increase our body’s ability to regenerate and heal itself.

Full disclosure: I receive a small fee if you buy, which I will immediately donate to my nonprofit. If you decide to buy, let me know so you can join our accountability group....

i hope it opens up some useful windows for you. since i've been working out hard i sleep like a champ but sometimes that means sleeping very early and missing some evenings completely. might be time to back it off a little.

I'e experienced the same thing, Freddy. If I hit a hard workout in the morning, and a long day at work, i'm ready to crash as soon as I get home. It also helps that I know I have to report to my buddies in the morning, so I actually TRY to get good sleep. I'll report soon, but thanks for stopping by.
