So you start your day’s work out, and you’re pumped and ready to go. You do your warm-ups and start in, only to find out there’s a big problem… you’re out of energy. In fact, you didn’t get enough sleep this week, and it’s finally catching up to you. You work out for a few minutes and then realize you’ve lost all steam. The next thing you know, you’re throwing in the towel.
It doesn’t have to be this way! Part of being healthy is also getting a good night’s sleep. You’ll have more energy, which can help in so many ways. Not only will you be less likely to skip a workout (or two), but you’ll also ensure that you have proper form, are focused, and that you enjoy your workouts.
This is especially important when you’re following a routine like The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Workout, which is pretty demanding on the body.
So how do you make sure that you get the best sleep each night? Follow these steps:
1. Turn off those screens
In our modern era, we’re surrounded by computer monitors and cellphone screens. These have the side of effect of tricking your body into thinking the sun is still out when it’s not. At least an hour before bed, turn those screens off.
2. Dim the lights
Like with computer screens and cellphones, you’ll also want to dim the lights a bit as you get closer to sleep time. This helps signal to your body that you’ll be turning in for the night.
3. Avoid doing any work or reading
If all you’re thinking about as you drift off to sleep is all the work you need to get done, you probably won’t sleep well. Skip doing work or even reading at least half an hour before bed to give your mind time to settle down.
4. Make your sleep area as relaxing as possible
However you sleep best, you’ll want to make the area you sleep in as inviting and welcoming as possible. This ensure that you can relax and let go as you drift off to sleep.
5. Use a noise machine
And if all else fails, a noise machine can be very helpful for many people. You can even download one to your phone for free. With these other steps along with this one, you’ll be sure to sleep better and live healthier.
We hope these tips will help you perform better while using The Master’s Hammer and Chisel Workout!
