Lean Body Hacks

When you get Lean Body Hacks into the habit of getting too little sleep, you stay in that habit, because, let's face it, we're all creatures of habit. And lack of sleep accumulates. There's an old wive's tale that says you can't catch up on sleep, but that's wrong. Sleep is when we heal and our body produces much-needed chemicals and hormones, that keep our bodies running at peak efficiency while we're awake. That's why people who are injured or sick need so much sleep, to heal.It's probably more difficult for people to get the proper amount of sleep now, more than ever, because of all the distractions and entertainment options we have. Years ago, when the sun went down, you had little choice but to go to bed or read a book by candle light. Now, there's Facebook and Twitter and Angry Birds and on and on to keep us occupied in a zombie-like trance when we should be sleeping.I find it best to turn off the computer, television and all other electronic "distractions" off at least an hour or two before I need to go to bed in order to get a full night's sleep. It's actually a very nice time. It's quiet and I get things done, like ironing clothes and simple tasks which help me wind down so that when I do go to bed, I get to sleep immediately.Sometimes it happens, you don't realize it at first, but suddenly you do, your child is overweight, may even be obese. Your child is not alone in this because over 17% of all children in the United States are obese. Stopping this weight gain once it has started is going to be a challenge but you can get it under control if you put your mind to it to help your child.
