When it comes to fitness and changing lifestyles, this usually is the last thing targeted (behind working out & nutrition). But, it should really come first. Just look at it from a 24 hour view. What do you spend the most time doing, Working out, Eating, or Sleeping?

I know. I know. You may be one of those, “I thrive with 4 hours sleep!” people, and guess what? You’re wrong. You are wrecking your body and mind, but just not seeing it right away. How is your heart rate? Blood pressure? Eating habits? Mood?

Some studies say that more than 1/3 of people are sleep deprived. 1 in 3!
