lent wellness day 5

Lent Wellness challenge day 5

Spring ahead!!!  Let’s spring ahead into a holy, healthy happy lifestyle!!

Be careful today, if you are apart of daylight savings time you most likely lost an hour of sleep last night.  Some of us can let this time change effect us for days.  Sleep is a very essential part of good health.  The average adult needs at least 8-10 hours of sleep a day.  Good quality sleep is key.  In order to get this high level of sleep we need to have bedtime routines, sleep in quiet, dark environments and sleep in a regular bed verses crashing on the couch when we can.  People who do not get enough good quality sleep tend to be 25pounds or more over weight.  Sleep deprivation can have the same effect on our bodies as intoxication, inability to concentrate, irritability, and lack of coordination.  To ensure success in our Lent wellness challenge.  Let’s make sure we are getting enough sleep.

Psalm 4:8  “I will both lay me down in peace and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.”

Be fit and be blessed,
