Was reminded of a post done on Grand Rapids, Monroe North Fitness’ blog the other day.  You can read the post here and I will make sure and leave a link at the end.

The discussion was on the importance that sleep involves in our daily fitness routine.  The blog states, “the benefits of sleep are amazing. Getting enough sleep will sharpen your mind, reduce inflammation, stabilize the metabolism, combat stress and depression, increase productivity and creativity, and is essential for building muscle and burning fat. In fact, the scenario of getting up early to workout could actually be the stressor…”

Timothy Morgenthaler, M.D from the Mayo Clinic says, “the average adult should be getting 7-8 hours per night.”  He goes on to talk about what is just as important as the quantity of sleep, ” If your sleep is frequently interrupted or cut short, you’re not getting quality sleep. The quality of your sleep is just as important as the quantity.”

“We are all different,” says Michael H. Bonnet, PhD, a professor of neurology at Wright State University School of Medicine and the director of sleep laboratory at the Dayton Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Ohio. “You need enough sleep so you can awaken feeling refreshed without an alarm clock.”

Some people need more sleep than others, Bonnet says. This need is based on genes, age, sex, and previous sleep amount, among other things. It also varies across the life cycle.

A final thought from Monroe North, “If you feel tired, moody, or unfulfilled with your fitness regime, perhaps you are not getting enough sleep. If that is the case, perhaps you should try to sleep an extra hour instead of getting up to work out and dream your way to a better body.”
