5. DON’T UNDERESTIMATE EXERCISE – EVEN IN SMALL DOSES
Simply put, you don’t need to work out seven days per week.
We wrote an article a while back about the Tabata Interval Training Method – a 4-minute high-intensity interval training (HIIT) regimen designed by Dr. Izumi Tabata.
The results of Tabata’s research are extraordinary: short periods of HIIT outperform 60 minutes of moderate exercise in every important measurement (e.g. fat burning, recovery time, muscle generation.)
HIIT training involves short bursts of intense exercises and short periods of rest.
6. GET QUALITY SLEEP
The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) recommends around 7 to 9 hours of sleep for healthy adults. That said, sleep quality is just as important.
Simply put, sleep hygiene – habits that help ensure a good night’s sleep – is critical. Lay off the caffeine, limit daytime napping, and having an established bedtime routine are three crucial elements of sleep quality.
