Weekly Quote:

‘Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you’re an honest person is like expecting the bull not to charge because you’re a vegetarian.’

bull

Life’s not fair sometimes. That’s the plain & simple of it. You will go nowhere in this world if you don’t take your own life into your own hands & make your own opportunities in the process. Success doesn’t happen to those that sit around waiting for others to do the work for them or for luck to come their way. The only way success happens, in any area of life, is through plain old hard work. Even the best among us need to constantly push ourselves to work harder & be the best we can be. The world won’t treat you fairly just because you’re a good person so work as hard as possible, be as good of a person as possible, & always do your best.

Fitness Fact Fridays – 6th December 2013

FitnessPlus Fact:

 

‘Sleep is just as important as diet & exercise.’

Though we have talked about sleep before , we spend much more of our time discussing diet & exercise. But sleep is just as important as diet & exercise to your fitness success. The proper amount of sleep each night (between 7 & 9 hours for most adults, although some need as little as 6 hours & some need as many as 10) is essential to the proper function of both your mind & your body. Sleeping the right amount will keep you alert at work & throughout the day, increase your productivity, improve the effectiveness of your training, &, most importantly, make you a healthier person overall. Sleeping enough is one of the most essential things that you can do to keep your body healthy.

How  much sleep do you get each night? Is it enough for you? What could you do to get more?
