You can’t expect a good result if you only eat a well-balanced and nutritious diet and skip your workout every day; or if you’re on a diet and working out until late at night, disrupting your sleep schedule; or if you work out regularly and sleep well but skip meals!
Do you understand, why? Diet, Exercise, and Sleep are all interconnected. These three factors tend to interact in a variety of ways. They are so intertwined that it is difficult to say which one should be prioritized.
- Sleep-deprived people are more drawn towards consuming unhealthy food and overeating. Sleep deprivation causes them to become lazy thereby giving up on exercise.
- Similarly, working out every day reduces sleep-related problems. It also helps you to avoid lazing around doing nothing which, otherwise, directly leads you to consume junk and unhealthy food.
- In the same manner, eating nutritious food and avoiding high-calorie foods help you to sleep in a better manner and keeps you active throughout the day, thus inducing a good workout session.
The main problem that people experience is facing sleep issues. They believe that, unlike the other two aspects, it isn’t in their control if sleep doesn’t naturally come to them. Let me help you with simple steps that might improve your sleep:
- Try having early dinner so that your body gets time to digest the food.
- Avoid caffeine like soda, coffee, and energy drinks as they contain properties that shoo away your sleep.
Exercise regularly to fatigue your body which will automatically shut itself down, thus giving you a good sleep.
