You made it, your recommended habits will..
Revitalise Your Energy
All things start with having Energy!
If you don't have enough energy, everything is harder! Especially making difficult changes to your life to establish new habits.
Getting this right make everything easier, so it's time to get on top of your Sleep and Stress!
Choose a couple of the habits below and experiment with them for at least 30 days before saying they don't work. Some won't stick, but some will make ALL the difference!
First - A Thought on Behaviour Change
When we set out to change our habits, we tend to set our goals and expectations unreasonably high, setting ourselves up to fail in the process. Instead of being attached to the goal, be committed to consistent actions that will take you to your goal. Focus on the journey and let the destination take care of itself.
How do you do this? Determine how much time could you realistically spare for your new habits each week. It may only be 5 minutes a day, or one 30 minute block. Whatever it is, make this the absolute minimum time commitment to developing this habit every week! And if the time you chose initially is too much, then revise and commit less time.
Whatever time you do commit to, it wants to feel totally manageable and achievable. If you do more you'll feel MORE successful and accomplished, view it as a bonus! The alternative is trying for too much, and feeling like a failure because you can't meet this the majority of the time. And give yourself a break, 5 days a week of a 'daily' habit will still make a huge difference in your life!

Getting enough good quality sleep and managing your stress level is essential for overall wellbeing!
Studies have found insufficient sleep is linked to your risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and more. Lack of sleep can also impair your cognition, your concentration, even your memory retention.
It's well known that chronic stress leads to poor health, causing headaches, insomnia, depression, anxiety, type 2 diabetes, heart disease & back pain. It also affects your digestion, breathing & immune system. Your whole body is impacted.
So if you want to be productive at work and live your best life, you need to maximise your ENERGY! Start this by building positive sleep and stress habits!
What do you need to know?
Although the recommended amount of sleep for adults is 7-9 hours each night, this changes over your lifetime. Some older adults can perform just fine with 6-7 hours sleep.
But use this as intended - a guide. Review your personal health, daily activities and sleep needs. Listen to your body. Remember every body is unique.
It’s also not a realistic goal to eliminate ALL of your stress. However, by following the habits above you can start to manage your stress better when it hits hardest.
Finding the best stress relief strategies for YOU may also take some experimenting, and some strategies may take practice to become more effective.
Most importantly, know that you CAN make a difference to your sleep and stress. Just focus on improving one thing at a time.
