Sleep tips from Magda, Alive & Well

I could write about the countless reasons why sleep is so important for you; your appetite, your mental health, your happiness and especially your fat loss and muscle gain.

But I’m not going to bore you with the science stuff. That’s not the approach I take with fitness.

Get 6-8 hours of quality sleep every night. I can’t stress how important this is for both fat loss and muscle gain, especially when you’re in workout mode.

Your body, your workouts and your goals will suffer from a lack of quality sleep.

If you have trouble getting to sleep try forming a sleep ritual.

Two hours before you want to go to bed:

  • Dim the lights and unplug from electronics.
  • Try sleeping with your phone in another room.
  • Replace the TV with some light reading
  • Meditation

If you’re still having trouble – try supplementing with Melatonin and/or drinking Chamomile tea before bed.
