Questions Worth Asking #12 Getting Enough Sleep

Questions Worth Asking

Are you getting enough sleep? How much is enough?

When a person is disciplined in one area, it often translates to other parts of life. Discipline in exercise often results in healthier eating choices. Who wants to chase a hard workout with a donut? The same goes with disciplined sleep. I’ve never seen a truly disciplined person who had lazy sleep habits. Some people sleep too much, while others don’t get enough sleep. But the disciplined sleeper sees the benefit of good rest and strikes a healthy balance between work and rest.

Being Fit: It’s a Body of Work

Fitness Body of Work

Have you ever been in a cave and seen a stalactite? Or a stalagmite? If not, maybe you’ve seen a valley carved out by a (relatively) slow-moving glacier. These things are formed over time. Ages, in most cases. The difference is not discernible from one day to the next, but it’s there…however small it may be.

Fitness is no different. A healthy body is a body of work, the product of thousands of decisions of varying significance.
