Most people know all too well how sleep impacts the way they feel and function each day. However, many never consider how our sleep impacts other lifestyle goals, such as physical fitness.
Sleep is essential for repairing and building muscle after exercise. Without enough quality sleep, the body is not able to fully rebuild muscles and restore energy for the next workout. With proper sleep, however, regulated hormone and energy levels prepare the body for optimal performance.
Sleep also impacts nutrition. Without proper sleep, changed moods cause individuals to gravitate towards less nutritious foods. Poor quality sleep also slows the metabolism so that the body does not use calories effectively.
