Fitness Friday: How to Build a Healthy Sleep Cycle?

By Tanvi Rastogi @tanviidotcom
To make mine and your life easier I have added a feature to the Fitness tab where you can leave me any fitness/health related question. If I happen to know the answer to your query I will pick it up for the Fitness Friday feature.

So the first question I received was, "How do you motivate yourself to wake up early?"

The thing is that I have always been a morning person, due to my upbringing. Eventually down the road it has become a healthy habit. Even when I try to sleep in, the latest I can go on is till 8:00am. That would be 'having a late morning' in my books. But one can change their sleeping cycle. To do so you would have commit to it. Here are some tips which might help you:

  • Close the television/computer latest by 9:30pm-10:00pm
  • Get in bed and read a book, if you don't think you are sleepy yet
  • Don't think about the next day, instead think of calm and pleasing thoughts
  • Don't eat anything after 7:00pm
  • Try waking up without an alarm (may be on weekends?) and see how you feel. That would tell you how much rest your body needed.
  • I have heard, having a glass of warm milk, before bed helps too

I had also answered this same question on my YouTube channel last year. You can check that out too.

" Sleep! Two hormones, leptin and ghrelin, regulate our appetite, and both are directly affected by how much sleep we get. These hormones work in a kind of "checks and balances" system to control feelings of hunger and fullness. Getting seven - eight hours of shut-eye each night helps the hormones work properly, which in turn will help curb your appetite."
