Did you know your brain isn’t sleeping when you are?
Essentially, it’s doing this:
Sleep is work.
But, until recently, I never acted on the information. I’ve gotten up with the sun over the last few weeks more often than not by recharging after all that sleep work.
How do I recharge after getting such a “sleep workout?”
- Fuel – I keep a bottle of water by my bed and try to drink a bunch as soon as my alarm goes off.
- Physical – Quick body weight (push-ups, squats, and sit-ups) exercises every morning after the water.
- Mental – This blog, every morning (when it comes late I never quite feel right).
I am full of energy before the day begins. Good morning!
